After a failed attempt of a manicure earlier this week, I wanted to try something different. I decided to pull a design from Chloe's Nails out of my bag of tricks and give it a shot. It's the same as the shredded mani I did before, but with the tape just flipped around so you paint the tips of your nails to create a modified french tip.
I began by cutting 10 pieces of Scotch Tape into a zig-zag design. Then, I gave each nail a coat of CND Stickey. I layered on 2 coats of OPI Princesses Rule! and oh my... that bottle of polish was thick. I think I need a new one because I've had it for years. I also applied one coat of Seche Vite to each nail to prep them for taping. As soon as the SV was dry, I began by taping and polishing 2 nails at a time. I would tape them off (so that you had to paint the zig-zags on the tip of your nail) and polish right over the tape. For 8 of my fingers I used OPI Ate Berries In The Canaries. On the ring fingers, I decided to spice it up a bit and instead used OPI DS Extravagance. When I was finished with all 10 fingers, I applied 2 coats of CND Super Shiney Top Coat and off I went.
I'm not sure I like the accent nail with a different color. Sure, it's fun... but this mani is already kind of out-there so I'm just not sure if it needed it. Oh well. It was a super-fun mani to create. Thanks to Chloe's Nails for the inspiration!
