2. Apply stripping tape

Cut a piece of stripping tape a bit longer than your nail, at its longest point.

Applying stripping tape

Lay the tape across the center-line of your nail, with the excess tape hanging off the end of your finger.

Applying stripping tape

Repeat on all of your nails.

Adding color

3. Add color

Apply a coat of orange gel paint on your nails, on one side of the stripping tape.

Adding color

Repeat on all your nails.

You can alternate which side of the tape you apply the orange polish to, and just do some of your nails if you wish.

Adding color

You can also change up the orange polish for black, on some of your nails.

Curing nails

Cure again, under a UV lamp.

Removing tape

Now, gently peel off the stripping tape.
