Nail Art: Tracy Reese NYFW Inspired V-Shaped Taping Design
I have been dying to recreate a design I saw during New York Fashion Week, which was a collaboration between Sally Hansen and designer Tracy Reese. Like so.
I also have been dying to try out Nubar- Knight's Armor, a recent acquisition. So, some nail art was born.
The purple is Misa- Breakaway, and the black/silver glitter is Nubar- Knight's Armor, one coat.
I used tape to get this effect, although it probably could be done without guides if you have a super steady hand and don't mind cleaning up cuticles.
The easiest way is probably to snip a triangular cut-out from a normal piece of Scotch tape, but I actually just cut tiny triangles since I wanted the V-shape to be purple (already on nails) and not the other way around.
I probably could have used two coats of the Nubar- Knight's Armor, as you can see below on the middle finger nail, but I didn't want there to be a thickness issue, so I stuck with one.
I have to say I felt totally fancy wearing this!
