  1. Paint your base. Apply base coat and two coats of your base nail color. Allow to dry.
  2. Tape one tip. Take a piece of tape and place it diagonally across one side of your nail. Paint the exposed area with textured polish.
  3. Remove. Carefully peel back the tape before allowing the polish to dry.
  4. Repeat. Move on to the next nail, alternating polishes however you see fit.
