Spring/Summer Pastel Nails!

I've recently been getting more into 'nail art' and adding little extra's to my nails as opposed to just painting them one colour! These are something i came up whilst i was playing around making different shapes using masking tape! I personally like the outcome of each nail being different but, you may do all nails the same like, have them all half one colour and half another!  

Anyway here's everything i used: 
Avon Clear Nail Polish, Nicki Minaj OPI 'Pink Friday', 'Mint green' from Marks & Spencer, Masking Tape, Scissors.

First i applied 3 (thin) coats of 'Pink Friday' which is part of Nicki Minaj's collection for OPI. Such a cute baby pink - love this colour!

I then put masking tape on my nails - covering the places i wanted to keep pink and leaving open the spaces i wanted to paint mint, green. Then painted two (thin) layers of the mint green nail varnish from Marks & Spencer - such a gorgeous colour - all over the free spaces (don't worry about painting over the tape!).

Make sure you leave your nail varnish to completely dry - before applying/pealing off the tape! And i chose to use masking tape as it isn't as sticky so there's less chance of it ripping your nail varnish off!

Then i topped it off with a clearpolish/topcoat to seal it all together, and here is the final result:


  1. This is a great idea, I wouldn't of thought to do this! :)

    1. you should try it! masking tape is so easy to get hold of and use! <3

  2. I've heard of this idea, and have been wanting to try using tape to create easy designs. Cute nails!
