Laser nails

Ease ★★★★★
Effectiveness ★★★★★

This is not a product review as such but more of a technique review. I saw "laser nails" described on Cute.A.S.Nails blog and thought they looked quality and it sounded like something I could do myself.

Barry M, Rimmel, nail polish, varnish, laser nails

I started off painting two coats of Barry M Baby Pink polish on my nails and letting it dry thoroughly. Then I cut some thin strips of tape and stuck them at angles on my nails (2 per nail, except 1 on little finger). Then I coloured in between the tape with Barry M in Mushroom and Rimmel in Silver. I left it to dry mostly and took the tape off and there they were - pretty laser nails! I did then do a clear top coat just to protect it all and smooth it over.

This is very easy to do, no assistance needed and looks really effective. No special equipment needed either, just your favourite nail varnish colours and some scissors and tape.

Have a go and show me the pics please!
