#26GNAI | mixed tape nails

Hi lovelies, welcome back. Sorry I've been a bit Mia, I've been battling with a sore neck and head. I really didn't want to miss any more days so I'm slowly catching up on everything. Today I have another crumpets nail tarts challenge for you. As you know it's a challenge run by some awesome ladies on Facebook.

Today's theme is mixed tape nails. Let me be honest and say I freaking hate striping tape ;) but I gave it a shot and really love the end result. I started with a beige base of opi be there in a prosecco. Using a black holo stamping polish I stamped a floral design and sealed in with a topcoat.

Once dry I sectioned off varies parts of the nail with thick and thin striping tape. I made sure every finger was different.

Then I sponged on 3 pretty serious polishes for a gradient. While everything was wet I removed the liquid latex and tape. Once I cleaned up, I added silver glitter tape to various parts of the nail for added dimension. I sealed it in with fast dry topcoat then added matte topcoat to finish.

For the stamping I used the Lucy's stash collab plate with bundle monster. My nail artisan clear cut stamper and hit the bottle stamping polish.

  1. That glitter tape is so gorgeous! It's a shame that tapes are such a pain to work with, because it really is beautiful. I love how your mani turned out- lovely design.

    1. Thanks so much hun, I agree it's pretty but the glitter tape is worse than the normal ones. Not as sticky so I had to topcoat under it also 😝😫 xx
