After using the pyramid shape in my last nail design, see Starry Night Nails, I decided to try using tape to create an arrow shape the next time.
I started with my base and then taped off my pyramid shape on the base of my nail. I added my purple polish and let that set for a few minutes before carefully removing the tape and placing it farther up towards the tips of my nails. I then used my golden glitter polish and carefully applied that to the second section.
After that had dried a bit I finished by removing the tape and adding my purple polish to the tips to finish the third section of my nails then followed with my top coat.
