Mani Monday – Metallic Claws

Tape Mani Triangular Nail Art Design Easy Nail Art Beginner

Nail art, in general, can seem like a daunting task, especially if you are new at it. Thankfully, using common household items can help you achieve professional looking designs very easily.

This metallic design features a gold polish and black polish with holographic glitter—creating a bold design that elongates the nail. The simple household item that you need for this design? Tape.

Tape allows you to create crisp lines without worrying about having a steady hand. This design would also be great with a negative space twist, monochromatic shades or in soft pastels.

To start, apply two coats of the first metallic shade (the one surrounding the triangle design). Allow to dry for a couple of minutes and then apply a quick dry top coat.

Once the top coat has dried completely, take pieces of tape and apply to the nail to create the triangle design. After the tape is properly positioned, take the second metallic shade and paint within the triangle design. Do not allow this polish to dry but rather right after it has been applied, remove the tape immediately

Allow the entire design to dry for a few minutes and then apply top coat.
