-I started my stopwatch at the beginning, with bare nails. I did not stop it until I was done.
-I only did 4 nails for this tutorial. My total time was 18 minutes. I think if you did all 10 of your nails you could easily do it in 20 minutes.
-I waited 3 MINUTES after the 2nd coat to apply the striping tape. 3 minutes! Lay the tape down, paint over, and remove immediately. Do one nail at a time.
-I filmed this in real time. You can even see me fumbling with my running watch to try to prop it during the 3 minutes so I wouldn't have to hold it, haha! It is sped up slightly so that no one has to watch an 18 min long video, but I didn't remove any content.
-Some of the taping, especially the cross hatched nail, occurred off camera because I can not fit both my hands under my phone to film the way I apply tape until I get a tripod! BUT I did not stop the timer!!
I added some China Glaze Fairy Dust to it but didn't wind up liking it like I thought.
