Striping Tape Nail Art featuring Sally Hansen Lustre Shine Moonstone

Happy Monday! I’ve been trying to reach into my nail polish collection and use polishes that I haven’t picked up in a while. This weekend I was drawn in by Sally Hansen Lustre Shine in the shade Moonstone. I decided to create a cool, punk inspired nail art look. Let me show you the final product!

Striping Tape Nail Art featuring Sally Hansen Lustre Shine Moonstone Striping Tape Nail Art featuring Sally Hansen Lustre Shine MoonstoneWHAT YOU NEED:

  • Black Nail Polish – Michael Marcus Once You Go Matte
  • Opalescent Nail Polish – Sally Hansen Lustre Shine Moonstone [BUY]
  • Glossy Top Coat – Essie Good to Go [BUY]
  • Striping Tape [BUY]
  • Scotch Tape [BUY]

To create this awesome manicure, I began by painting my nails with a black base. Then, I applied two coats of Moonstone over the black and let that dry completely. I then used striping tape to create a double “X” on every nail except my accent nail. Once the striping tape was in place, I painted over it with the black polish and carefully peeled off the tape. For the accent nail, I simply used Scotch tape and left a triangle on the base of my nail. Last but not least, I used a glossy top coat and applied two coats to each nail once my polish was completely dry. This evened out the layers and left me with a shiny finish.

Striping Tape Nail Art featuring Sally Hansen Lustre Shine MoonstoneAll in all, I am absolutely loving this funky manicure! It was so easy to create and it allowed me to use some of my older polishes in a new way. This look can be adapted to fit your personal tastes by changing up the colors or the patterns. I love experimenting with tape! Please let me know in the comments if you like my manicure, and let me know if you like using striping tape, too.

    I recently bought some striping tape for the first time. Any good tips on how to use it? I’m worried that when I peel it up, it will take off the bottom layer of polish with it.

      Striping tape is remarkable easy to use! The only thing you need to worry about is making sure the base layer of polish is completely dry. I like to paint my nails about 1-2 hours before I go to bed, and then finish with my nail art in the morning so I know they are 100% dry. Let me know if you have other questions!
