Originally I did the opposite; my ring finger was red with black and the rest were black with the red hourglass. First the tape pulled all the red off my ring finger and when I topped the rest of them with Seche Vite they buckled or something. They looked awful. What a mess. So I started over. I used tape on my thumb and pinkie, but I just couldn't get it to look right. I free handed my middle and index fingers. The Seche Vite didn't buckle this time. I don't know what happened the first time. Odd.
