Mani-Monday: Stripes and Flowers

This week I created a simple nail look with a pop of color. It has a summery and girly feel. This nail design may take a while to create, but you are left with a great nail look. To get this look:
You will need:
Base coat
White nail polish
Black nail polish
Pink neon nail polish
Green neon nail polish
Top coat
Striping tape
Dotting tool or toothpick
Step 1: First, apply your base coat. Then apply two coats of your white polish, I used ‘Porcelain Party’ by Maybelline. Wait for your nails to completely dry. Waiting for your nails to dry is important because if your nails are still wet the tape will lift the nail polish).
Step 2: Apply a piece of striping tape vertically. Then leave a little bit of space and apply another piece of striping tape. Then leave a bit of space again and apply another piece of striping tape. Then leave a bit of space again and apply your last piece of striping tape. (LIKE THE PICTURE BELOW) 

Step 3: Using your black polish, I used ‘Onyx Rush’ by Maybelline, paint over the striping tape. Make sure to avoid applying the black polish outside the last two pieces of striping tape. Peel the striping tape off immediately (peel it off slowly). (LIKE THE PICTURE BELOW)
Step 4: Then, using your dotting tool or toothpick, dip it into your neon pink polish, I used ‘24/7’ by Sinful Colors, and dot five circles to create a flower. Then dip your dotting tool or toothpick into your green neon polish, I used ‘Summer Rain’ by Duri, and create a dot in the middle of the flower.
Step 5: Lastly, apply a generous amount of top coat and you are done!
