Nailside: Tutorial: Double lightning bolt tape mani

Making the double lightning bolt is actually not that different from making the single one; what you need to do is actually just repeat the steps from the regular lightning bolt tutorial. But because the double version received so many enthusiastic reactions I decided it deserved its own tutorial :) One tip: for this particular design transparant tape is quite useful!

While you're cutting all the tape strips for the first lightning bolt, cut one extra for each piece because you'll do the whole taping process twice. So in total you'll need two strips and two triangles for each nail. Let your nails dry completely, if necessary with the help of a fastdrying topcoat. After you've finished the first step and everything is dry, take a tape strip and apply it on the design, covering up a bit of the tip color as shown in the picture. Then apply a triangle on the design, also covering up part of the tip color. Daily Nail Art: Octopus Tentacles. Nail Junkie. Yaaaay!

I created this splatter nail design using five (5) Orly nail colors. I’ve been eyeing this splatter nail art for a few weeks, and I decided to give it a whirl.
