Nail Art: Tape mani

This is entirely inspired by a picture I saw on Pinterest. It wasn't executed perfectly, but I like how it came out :) I should have used a different glitter polish, the China Glaze I used was a bit too thick and all the topcoat I had to use caused some bubbling :(

Here are the polishes:

light gray: OPI: French Quarter for Your Thoughts
dark gray: Essie: Power Clutch
black: American Apparel Hassid
Glitter: China Glaze Techno

I used individually cut pieces of tape, which is kind of hard to make uniform when you have huge scissors and a small piece of tape, lol. This manicure did take time and patience because I had to make sure the layer I was putting tape on was totally dry.

Have you done any "Pinterest" manis?

This is gorgeous. I feel so embarrassed because I posted my nails using tape and it looks like crap compared to yours lol

I just saw a tutorial on youtube from cutepolish and she made a chevron mani using crafting scissors. Hooray.
