stairway to heaven, striping tape nailsThese Stairway to Heaven nails were inspired by the recent Australian Fashion Week. The combination of blue and nude was one of the most popular shades at the event. As for the pattern, we wanted to try something new and came up with this geometric design that somehow resembles stairs.

Soft colours and an understated design makes this suitable for the day or night. Plus, like any striping tape nail art, it is also quite easy to re-create. Just follow our step-by-step tutorial below!
