So, now for the tips. I thought OPI Ink would complement the pale lilac of Marley.

This came out better than I expected. Here are some things I learned:
1. Since the scotch tape leaves such a straight line, I think the nails should be filed as square as possible.
2. Wait longer than you want before doing the scotch tape because it will smudge the base coat a little. However, the topcoat will smooth that out a bit.
3. Stick the tape to your arm or hand a few times to cut-down on the stickiness to avoid marring the base coat.
4. Take that tape off as soon as you paint the tips.
I must credit Chloe's Nails for inspiration!
