Digit-al Dozen Does Tape Manis: Starting out Simple

 press sample 
Is it Monday already?!? Well, the good news is I have a short work week! On Friday I head to Las Vegas for Cosmoprof North America. I can't wait! I'll have a separate post with details. For now, let's get into Digit-al Dozen Week. This month's theme is tape manis. Ahhhh, be still my heart! I love using tape for crisp lines and details. Since I'm so busy preparing for going out of town, I'm going to keep it simple.

This was soooo easy. I started with two coats of INGLOT O2M #685 and one coat of Seche Vite over the entire nail and waited for it to completely dry. I used craft scissors to cut several one-inch or so pieces of tape in half lengthwise. I placed a cut piece on the right side of every nail and polished a generous coat of OPI Pussy Galore, a Liquid Sand polish, on the left, removing the tape after each nail.

No topcoat required. I love the mix of shiny/smooth and texture. My pics don't do Pussy Galore justice. It has tiny flecks of hot pink running through it and it complements the pink INGLOT perfectly. My advice for crisp lines is to remove the tape slowly. In this case I grabbed the tape from the outside and pulled it off in one swoop toward the center of each nail.
