What I did was taking a strip of tape and used a pair of scissors to cut a flame pattern. I placed the tape on my nails and then painted the tips. The colors I used? Riveting and Electrify! I had trouble lifting the tape off. I will definitely have to practice that. You can see on my pointer finger, some of the tape was left behind; and on my ring finger, some of the polish and top coat came up with the tape.
**DISCLAIMER** I was not paid for this review by anyone. I either purchased these polishes myself or were given gifts as friends because I could not find the particular shade I wanted myself. I am not a professional nail tech, nor do I want to be. I'm just someone who enjoys polishing my own nails :)
