NY Fashionail Week Day 3: Tracy Reese

This nail design is from the Tracy Reese show at NYFW SS13. They were created by Sally Hansen's manicurist, Tracy Lee. There were 4 different colour combinations but the blue was my favourite of course! You can see more pictures of the manicures and the other colour combos at The Budget Babe.




I used Barry M Blueberry as a base colour and then a striping brush with No7 Stand Back to first draw on two lines to make a triangle and then fill in the rest of the nail (If you don't trust yourself with a skinny brush, I wrote a tutorial using scotch tape over at Makeup and Beauty Blog). Finally, I used two coats of Essence Better Than Gel Nails to top coat it.

    But how did you do this? I tried a similar design a few days ago and used scotch tape, but it didn't work well and I had problems peeling the tape off ...
