Silk Triangle Nails

For this design I used 3 colours from Barry M’s Silk Nail Effects range, but it would work great with a mixture of colours and finishes. I was after a subtle design this time, but a mix of light, dark and bold colours would look great also.

I first painted all nails in 2 coats a lilac shade called heather and let this dry very well.

Then I used striping tape to tape off a triangle shape from the top of the nail and having the point of the triangle land around 90% of the way down the nail. I did this on all nails and filled it in with a white shade called pearl before removing the tape.

I again gave this plenty of time to dry. Then I used striping tape again, but this time to make a triangle of a smaller size starting from the bottom of the nail and going upwards. I did this across all nails.

This time I used a brownish shade called truffle before removing the striping tape and adding top coat. I was left with a design where the triangles overlapped each other in the middle.
