1. First I applied Scotch tapes as shown in first pic. I used 2 tapes to make the hour glass shape.

2. Then I applied Black polish and let it dry

3. Once it is dry I applied matte top coat on the nails

4. Then in the plastic cap I took out some polish around 3-4 drops and let it stand like that for 5 mins. Since I am using different brand of polishes, the time taken for each polish to have this sticky and thread like texture varied from 5-10 mins. I kept checking in between to ensure I have the correct consistency. You need to do bit of hit & trial here.

5. Once the polish is in proper thickness take the toothpick and take some polish, keep the toothpick at sides of the nails.. mark it not on the nails, on the skin. Then dab the toothpick on the skin and you see same threads appearing, quickly try and bring it towards center of nails. Don’t touch the toothpick to the nails, keep it just little above it. The threads will settle and apply on its own.

6. Repeat the above step till you are satisfied with the look.

7. Once its done take out the scotch tape using tweezer.


I really loved this mani and going to try in future too.. may be will do a video next time.
