  2. A transparent nail polish.
  3. Thin strips of tape.

Step 2:

Start up by applying the first nail color on (E.g. Apply white color) your nails. And let it dry completely! To prevent streaking.

Step 3:  

  • Now take thin strips of tape and paste it on to your nails with an equal gap in between the strips! (This is done to create a fine distance between the two colors and to prevent rough or dirty mixing) The most efficient way to do this is to rip between one- and two-inch pieces of tape, put them on the cap of nail paint bottle, and then cut the skinny strips if you do not get thin one!
  • Now to appear your nails like a candy cane you must be paste these strips diagonally on your nails!
