some form of masking tape, you can use striping tape, masking tape, cellotape, whatever works for you, remove after curing colour coat if using gel polish. Remove immediately if using normal nail polish.

There's a MoYou London stamp that gives this effect as well x

I use a brush called a super striper it's really long & thin, I pull it through my paint wiping off any excess before I lay & pull it across the nail in one motion ...& voile a perfectly straight crisp line! Xx

So, this is my best attempt, used thin striping tape but still not exactly straight, then glitter gets on white ! Grrrr ... What am I doing wrong ? [emoji25]

Looks pretty good to me!! But personally I don't use striping tape, look at the straight lines you can get just using the brush! A lot less fiddley too!!

I find painters tape is great because it doesn't leave any tackiness behind on the nail.

That's very good. I would then use my striping brush with the red polish to neaten up the white edges. X
