Whenever I get a fresh white gel manicure, the first thing I aways want to do it try out a new nail art technique, it’s the perfect blank canvas. Also, with gel mani’s you can just wipe away your mistakes with nail polish remover and the white stays, like a dry erase board! I saw some delicate stripe nails pop up on my instagram during Fashion Week, and was dying to try to emulate. I scoured my studio for striping tape, but came up empty handed. Plan B: I tried electrical tape (my favorite for nail art) to tape off super thin lines, and used a nail art brush to get a perfect(ish) thin stripe. Then I added a barely-there neon accent. I am SUPER stoked with how straight and clean looking it turned out! Supplies after the break…

    This is elegant and simple <3 I wish I could do this but I'm not so very good at putting white polish on my own fingernails. They always end up sloppy-looking. XD
