I've technically finished my 4 technique posts for the Nail Challenge Collaborative, but I couldn't resist doing another tape mani. This one took me a looong time.
I started with Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer We Saved The World I Say We Party!, a very light pale lilac-leaning-pink.
So, I saw this look from Love, Varnish, Chocolate, and more, and I just loved it. So, I broke out the tons of tape I knew it would take to make it! I did recycle the tape for the other hand, but it was still a lot of tape.
A LOT. Tape everywhere. I felt like a Bizzaro-world Wolverine.
I painted over the tape with Julep Reese, an eggplant polish with holo glitter. I really like it when a glitter is so fine that you can paint with it and still get nice, clean lines.
And then, I added silver studs. These are the largest I have, probably 3mm or so.
You can imagine how much effort it took clumsy me to apply all that tape with my left hand. It was a circus! But I did it!
If you've ever seen the comic The Maxx, you might understand why I think this look is reminiscent of his teeth. I couldn't shake it!
I was pretty proud of my Herculean effort to work with all that tape, though. I wore this look out to a nice dinner with some old friends and had a great time! Do you make a special effort with a mani when you're going to see a particular person?
