Born Pretty Store White Tape Nail Art Edge Guide Review & Coupon Code

Hello readers,
Today I have some more nail art supplies from Born Pretty Store to try out.  I picked the white tape nail art edge guides because I thought they might be a good alternative to striping tape.

 Each packet comes with 44 guides.  On my first attempt at using them I discovered that they don't get along with my curvy nail beds.  As much as I press the ends down they kept lifting up.  I ended up using them in a design parallel to my nail which provided a flatter surface for them to stick to.  Here's what I came up with using Orly On The Edge as my Base Color and Femme Fatale The First Northern Witch as my accent colour.

Step 1: Place nail art guide vertically about a third in from the right edge of your nail over a completely dry base colour.

Step 2: Paint the exposed area with a different polish colour.

Step 3: Peel the nail guide off while the new polish is still wet.

Use the brush or a large dotting tool (whichever you're more comfortable with) to place large dots centered over the edge of the new polish colour.

Step 5: Use a smaller dotting tool to place dots of the base polish colour inside the larger dots from Step 4.

Step 6: Top coat!

Overall I think these nail guides have their uses.  I like that they are thicker so you don't have to worry about painting over the line like you do with striping tape and they do give a nice crisp edge.  I think for very intricate linear designs striping tape would be a better fit though.Don't forget if you plan to buy any nail art supplies from Born Pretty Store make sure to use the coupon code MSTK31 for 10% your order of regular priced items.

Happy polishing,
