Tape Challenge #4 - Peek-a-holo!



Hello, Fireflies!

This is my last (scheduled) tape mani for the challenge!  I had so much fun doing them that I finished my four before the month was up!  We'll see if I decide to do any more.

I was inspired by this mani by IG@Pastel Polish that I found on Pinterest, and all my untried holos from Amy's Nail Boutique!  There are five altogether in this mani.  On my thumb, from top to bottom: Aquarius, Fire Dancer, Purple Prism, and Gabriel.  Biker Chick is the darker purple you can see on the tip of my pinkie, and is also somewhere on the other fingers.

I put pieces of striping tape over each color.  I probably would have liked this better if I'd used larger pieces of regular tape so I could really see the holo at the end.

I painted over everything with OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, and then peeled of the tape!

Peek-a-boo! I see that holo shining through!

Lots of bottles for this bottle shot!  OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, Biker Chick, Fire Dancer, Purple Prism, Aquarius, and Gabriel.

I have been on a white kick these last few days!  Yesterday's mani had me starting with OPI MBSW, and covering it up; today's started with lots of color, and ended up mostly white.  Which do you like better?

  1. This was a great idea! I have seen these types of tape manis before, but never with multiple colors.

Thank you for your comments! They mean so much to me, and I read all of them, even if I don't always have a chance to respond.
