1. Scotch Tape

Use a plain old scotch tape in order to mask off the body of the nail. Before you do this, apply the tape on your hand and peel it off in order to remove excess stickiness. Then apply the tape at the edge of the nail bed line and paint the tip of the nail with white nail polish.

2. Nail Polish Brush

Yes girl, just use what you already have! If your nails are long enough, you can hold the nail polish brush still in one place, and twist your finger from right to left in order to cover the entire surface.

3. Nail Polish Remover And Brush

If there was an eraser to remove nail paint mistakes, then this would be it! Apply the nail polish in vertical strokes  on the tip of the nail. (It does not need to be perfect.) Then dip a brush in makeup remover and wipe away the excess nail paint in order to create a sharp line.
