DAY 7 Pre-Spring Challenge: Pastel (tape mani)

This mani reminded me that I need more pastels in my life. I love pastels. Why don’t I have some more? 😦 I really wish that I had Butter London’s or Zoya’s spring collection now… Anyway, here’s the final result:pastel tape1
Colors used:
Purity by Zoya (white)
Thanks a Windmillion by OPI (green)
Don’t Pretzel My Buttons by OPI (creme)
Lilac Powder by ANNY (lilac)

If only I had Butter London’s Fiver and Jasper. Then I would replace the white for Jasper and the green for Fiver. Oh well, it’s nice right?pastel tape

Duochrome striping tape mani

striping tape mani 2Here’s my striping tape adventure! I started this mani with two coats of China Glaze’s Liquid Leather and a top coat (Seche Vite). After that was completely dry I created a pattern with (a lot of!) striping tape (one nail at a time), used a thick coat of Ozotic 506 and immediately removed the striping tape. I finished with another coat of Seche Vite and voilà!striping tape maniThis mani has cost me a few hours! I love the result! What do you think?

If you’re thinking of creating such a mani, I advise to cut up A LOT of striping tape before you start. I know that you can’t tell how much you need before you start, but it’s annoying to find halfway the mani that you have to little (I know ;))

Oh and stay tuned for an exciting announcement from myself and Mommy Loves Nail Polish!

DAY 4 Advent Calender Nail Challenge: Silver

Day 4 at the Advent Calender Nail Challenge is all about Silver.
For this mani I’ve used OPI’s Black Onyx and Radiance and a lot of (striping) tape.
This was very time consuming! Especially since I messed it up a couple of times. I simply didn’t have enough patience to wait for it to dry before I began taping. Ohh well, it turned out quite nice right?
