I have tried and failed creating Mondrian-inspired nails more times than I can count regardless of the methods that I’ve tried. Tape and freehand attempts have all ended in a jumbled mess of nail polish. Until now.
I recently bought some striping tape on eBay and decided to give the Mondrian-inspired nail art another try and this time success wasn’t so fleeting. I used the striping tape to create the design that I would like, filled in the boxes with nail polish and then removed and reapplied the striping tape. Et voilà! Mondrian-inspired nails.
Using striping tape proved both easier and harder than I thought. I didn’t have the curling and warping problems that other nail art lovers reported but the tape wasn’t as sticky as I would have liked and applying it with one hand was quite challenging BUT practice makes me perfect.
For this manicure I used and Maybelline Colour Show Nail Polish in Porcelain Party and Fierce N Tangy and Ardene ACO Nail Polish in Red Sapphire and Electric Ocean and black and white striping that I bought on eBay.
