Tape Mani

Today I have for you a tape mani that was inspired by a couple new polishes. While milling around Walgreens I grabbed a couple SinfulColors that were on sale. They were waving at me with all their brightness and I just had to have them. May I introduce you to Innocent and Boogie Nights (my two newbies).

Sinfulcolors Innocent and Boogie Nights

Innocent is gorgeous creme green while Boogie Nights is a neon orange in the bottle but is toned down a bit on a the nail. Trust me, it's still bright enough :) This picture has Boogie Nights looking pink but the color on my thumb nail is pretty true. I originally planned to do this mani with Innocent and Boogie Nights on each nail however it kind of morphed mid mani to using different colors on each nail.

Ultimately I ended up using NYC French White Tip as the base and Jordana Boy Oh Boy, Funky Fingers Cheshire, elf Fuscha, SinfulColors Innocent and SinfulColors Boogie Nights from pinky to thumb.

I find that I have to leave lots of time between my base coat and the nail art or the tape just makes a mess of my base coat. That's even with blotting the tape on my hand a few times to reduce the stickiness. These lines ended up pretty straight and without smudges so I was pretty happy with them. 

Have you ever done any scotch tape nail art?

Thanks for giving me a read ~ Linda
