Guest Bloggers: Sarah from Scissors and A Whisk

Hey everyone! My name is Sarah, and I blog at Scissors and a Whisk.

Before I start, you know, telling you what to do… I thought I’d introduce myself!

This is me with my beloved hubby Matt. Matt = puffy hearts. This photo was NOT edited in any way.Haha, I kid, I kid!

We were high school sweethearts and started dating when I was a sophomore in high school, and we got married March 24th, 2012. I love him to bits, and you can learn about our love story here.

This is my lovely Lucy (affectionally referred to as Lucyfer at times). She is a little over a year old, and she’s a Yorkie. No, you can’t have her ;) And yes, I blog about her a lot. And Matt. And baking, cooking (rarely), crafts, nails, and just… life!Ok, ok. Enough. If you truly want to know more about moi, just head on over to Scissors and a Whisk.

Step 1. Apply base coat. I use Essie’s Grow Stronger. Apply your base color. I used Essie’s Coat Azure. Apply top coat. My top coat is Revlon.Step 2. I like to let me nails dry for about one hour after applying top coat (step 1) and before arranging the tape. Cut your tape into the design you want. I cut stripes for this tutorial. I used Scotch double sided tape because it’s all I had. Try to stay away from heavy duty tape, and anything else is fine. Carefully arrange the tape. Press the tape down gently so it covers your entire nail, or else the lines won’t be clean. Step 3. Paint a second color polish on your nail (mine is Essie’s Big Spender). Let the polish dry a few seconds, and peel it off slowly. Once your nails are dry, seal with a top coat. Use a q-tip dipped in nail polish remover to remove excess polish.

Once you feel comfortable using tape, the designs you can create are endless!

I hope y’all have enjoyed this post, and don’t be afraid to get a little crazy with your nails! Even if you do mess up, it’s nothing a little nail polish remover can’t fix. Be sure and stop by my blog and say hi!


Also, be sure to check out Sarah’s blog today, because I (yours truly! Megan, silly!) prepared a guest blog for her, so click on over and see what I have to say. (Well, had, I wrote it like 3 weeks ago. But it still rocks, I promise.)
