To start with apply a base coat to protect your nails. When the base coat is dry, apply 2 coats of your chosen polish. Don’t worry if you wobble, use a small brush and. Nail polish remover to neaten up the edges. Cut stripes of tape and stick them down where you would like the design.
Carefully clip the excess tape from the edges of your nails. Repeat this with as many colours of tape as you like. Once I was happy with the tape I used some sfx glue ( I ran out of nail glue) to adhere some tear drop gems to my nails. Now add a top coat and you are done!
