If you’re looking for a new and totally “unboring” way to wear your favorite black nail polish, this look might be for you! Start off with a base coat, and let it dry. Using a black nail striper, draw a triangle. Fill the shape in with a black nail polish. Let it dry and finish with a matte top coat.

Don’t have steady hands? Rip off a piece of scotch tape, cut out a little triangle, and carefully place it at the base of your nail. Repeat on the other nails. Then apply a coat of a black nail polish and peel away the tape. Finish with a matte top coat.
