  • NK Base Coat
  • O.P.I "Cajun Shrimp"
  • Sinful Colors "Rise and Shine"
  • La Colors Art Deco gold glitter
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Topcoat
  • Tape

How To:
1. Apply a base coat.
2. Paint your nails an orange-red shade and let them dry.

Time for the tape!
(Make sure your nails are completely dry for this part.)
 1. Touch the back of the tape to make it a little less sticky. This will keep it from messing up your nail polish underneath.
2. Fold tape in half(lengthwise), leaving one end open so that it's easy to unfold.
3.  Cut out your diamonds like shown below. Since the tape is folded, your cut-outs should look like triangles.

4. Carefully unfold tape. Place on nail and paint over with a turquoise polish.

5. Slowly remove tape while nail polish is still wet.

Same goes for the index finger. Just cross 2 pieces of tape to create a triangle.

6. Outline with glitter, apply a top coat, and POOF! gorgeous nails. :)

Side note: Adding glitter not only makes your creation look more fabulous but it can also camouflage any accidents.
