What kind of tape do you use when you're masking off part of the nail? I've tried using masking tape but I don't always find it works that well. Would sellotape take off the undercoat of paint?
Hi, thanks for the question!
I use regular tape, but I stick it to the palm of my hand a few times so that it takes off the really sticky glue - this means it won’t peel your base coat off but will still be sticky enough to give you the crisp line.
Also, remove the tape when the polish is still slightly wet as it gives a better line and as you pull the tape off try to pull it slightly towards the polish you just painted, that way if some polish does drag it wont spoil your perfect line.
Another example of my bespoke nails. A lady wanted the Radiohead bears on two sets of nails. These are the most intricate nails I’ve ever done and they were pretty difficult but I’m very happy with how they came out.
