Remember last week, a bunch of fellow bloggers and I did a collaboration featuring water marbles? Today we have another collabo, featuring tape mani's. Basically you just use tape (scotch, masking, striping, etc) and create designs on your nails so when you paint over it and peel the tape off, your designs show.
For me, this was a miserable, miserable failed attempt! I tried 3 times (one of which was so horrible, I didn't even take pictures!)! I think the problem is that I'm too impatient and didn't want to wait for my base color to dry before applying the tape to my nail. It kept smudging, or moving. Nightmare! But I'm going to show you 2 of 3 of my failed attempts because I didn't do this for nothin'! LOL. Plus, I'm sure it will be amusing to see for those of you who are "Master Tapers!" ;)
So here's Failed Attempt #1:
This was my last and final attempt. I used OPI Flit a Bit as the base, Wet n Wild Fantasy Makers Purple Potion and Color Club Age of Aquarius. Then because I thought it still wasn't enough, I added some purple gemstones. Still not happy with this, but at least it's somewhat decent hehe. Topped it all off with a layer of SV and I was done-zo! This was fun to do though, because you really get to play around with different designs and colors. I just need to be more patient and let my polishes dry before taping over them :)
