Metallic, metallic, metallic – ooh so many possibilities. Today The Beauty Buffs are talking about Metallic and I’ve gone right to getting some metallic on my nails!

I wanted to come up with a design that is elegant, sophisticated and clean. I love the look of silver striping tape on nails (see a previous design HERE), so I created this look with some silver metallic nail art tape.

Polishes Used:

OPI: alpine snow
OPI: unfrost my heart (from the HOLIDAY Collection)
OPI: sleigh parking only (from the HOLIDAY Collection)

Technique:

I first applied a base coat and then put two strips of metallic striping tape on my nail. Using a small nail art brush I polished sleigh parking only on the moon of my nail, then unfrost my heart in the middle and alpine snow on the top two thirds of my nail (do not worry if you get polish on the tape). I then used tweezers to remove the nail art tape and replaced it with fresh tape. Using cuticle nippers, I cut the tape close to the sides edge of my nail. I finished by applying HK Girl topcoat to seal in the design and keep the metallic tape from lifting.
