About Striping Tapes
Crisp, clear lines in nail art seem impossible to achieve if you are not a professional nail artist. There is a secret weapon, however, that nail artists use called striping tape. The tape is usually available in a variety of widths, and it adheres to your nail or to your nail polish, but it does not lift the polish off the nail. Once the tape is in place, it serves as a barrier for the wet polish. You lift the tape while the polish is still drying, and then you have the nice, clean lines you want. For complicated nail art, it helps to color code the tapes that you use, so a set of 10 nail art striping tapes can help you to keep even the most complicated designs orderly.
