Tutorial Thursday: Glitter Strips for Barry M

Hey everyone! It's been a while since I did a tutorial thursday, mainly because I keep forgetting to post tutorials on thursdays (or tuesdays) because I'm terrible at remembering things! Today I have a tutorial I created for Barry M. I decided to try something a little different, and I'm not 100% sure it worked but I'll let you be the judge. Tutorial steps will be after the jump.

Step 1: Place two lines of striping tape down your nail. Make sure your nail is free of oils and make sure it’s stuck down well
Step 2: Paint over your nail and the tape as you would normally. I still did two coats but you can just do one if you prefer.
Step 3: In the middle of your nail carefully add glitter between the strips of tape. I used Barry M – Fashion Icon from the Glitterati collection
Step 4: Remove the tape from your nails. It’s best to do this quickly to avoid dragging the polish

Step 5: Add a topcoat to your design. I decided to make it matte but you can leave it shiny if you prefer
