Nail art - Triangle tips

I've had the pictures of this design for a while now and just haven't got round to posting about it, so I haven't got an awful lot to say about it as I can't really remember doing it. I realise I've been a bit slack on the nail art front recently and haven't posted any for a while (apart from the one that went up a week ago that was supposed to go up after this one), must do better!

Apologies that the light was pretty bad when I took the photos of my nails but improved when I took the last photo, so they look different. I normally don't have very long before my nails start chipping or don't look good enough for photos, so if the light is bad for a few days I might not get any pictures at all and have to recreate the design again in the future.

This is kind of a different take on white tips, making them into almost triangles rather than just a strip over the white part of the nail. To do it I just painted the base colour and once this was completely dry used masking tape to make the triangle shape. I then painted on the white and removed the masking tape before this started to dry and then once dry I applied a top coat. The white wasn't quite enough to fully cover the red but I quite like the effect it gave with the red slightly showing through.

What do you think of triangle tips?

    1. It is very simple to do, you just need to make sure that your base colour is dry before you start using masking tape on it x

    1. Thank you. It's really annoying when I spend quite a while on a design and then it chips within something like 24 hours! x
