Good morning my fellow lacquered lovers! An early morning post for you all today (and hopefully I will squeeze one in this afternoon as well!) As you might remember, last Monday, myself and fellow lacquer lovers and bloggers all did a water marble manicure and posted it together for you all to see! Today, we bring you our take on tape manicures! I've long been a fan of tape manicures, one of my first tutorials was a tape manicure, my first foray into nail art was a tape manicure, and I've done two tape manicures so far for my freelance job at Divine Caroline! Last week I discovered the joys of striping tape and now, I bring you a CRAZY manicure I did for my friends birthday party last week where I knew I'd be out in the sun all day! Now, without further ado, on to the polish!
Above: Tape Manicure with Flash
First I wanted to show you all how cool this looks with a flash! To do this manicure, I started with some of my new neons I picked up at Rite Aid (only $2.99! Neon Mattes, amazing!) These are Nuclear Pink and Rocket Green. Then I laid down the striping tape in different patterns on each nail and covered with one coat of Layla Black Flash which is a gorgeous charcoal gray linear holographic polish. I'm obsessed! Here are some not as fun pictures without the flash but you still get a bit of the holographic effect:
There was a little mishap on the last one, I actually had to do that nail twice and both times messed it up but I actually kind of like it! I got so many compliments on this manicure when I wore it and it was just super fun to do! Be sure you check out all the other fabulously talented ladies as well below!
What did you think of this manicure? Do you like laser tape manicures like this? What color combinations do you think would look great?
