Tutorial: Racing Stripes

Hi Lovelies! As promised, I've got a tutorial for my last manicure to show you today. It is a quite simple look when you break it down and I hope that will encourage you to play around with striping tape as well. Whether it is this arrangement, one from a previous tutorial or something you create on your own. Give it a try and remember to have fun!


  1. Paint your nails the desired base color and allow it to dry completely. 
    • You can speed this up by using a quick dry top coat or drops
  2. Arrange striping tape as shown above. 
    • For my thumb, I used a similar chevron arrangement as on my ring finger, but a simple stripe would work just as well. 
  3. Using the silver polish, paint in between the two sections of striping tape.
  4. Remove the striping tape closest to the cuticles while the polish is still wet to ensure a clean line, but leave the other piece(s) of striping tape in place.
  5. Apply the glitter polish covering the nail tips up to the remaining striping tape.
  6. Remove the striping tape while the polish is still wet.
  7. Add a top coat to seal in your work and enjoy!!

I hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial! Please don't hesitate to ask questions and let me know what you think of this!

Thanks for looking!
