31DC2012: Day 12 - Stripes

Today's theme is stripes! I have a tape mani to show you! :) I don't have a whole lot to say so I'll just get right into it!

The lovely Yvonne (lafemmelulu) on Instagram inspired this mani! She is the queen of tape manis! She does absolutely gorgeous manis every time! If you have IG and aren't following her, you're crazy! Go and follow her right now! :)

For the base I used Essence - Sweet as Candy, a sheer jelly pink. It's not really streaky, but I wish it leveled out as nicely as the OPI Ballet Collection sheer jellies do! I then used a thin coat of Essie - Good to Go fast drying top coat so that layer would dry faster. I waited about 40 minutes and then taped off a section of my nail and painted the tip of my nail with China Glaze - Fast Track, a new polish to me from the Hunger Games collection that is a nude with tons of gorgeous gold shimmer. I then used another coat of Good to Go over that, and once it was dry, I taped off a section slightly lower down and used Essie - Super Bossa Nova, a hot pink with loads of pink and blue-ish shimmer. And then I topped it off with Seche Vite top coat.

Sadly I didn't get to wear this mani for longer than a couple hours because it just would NOT dry completely. I guess I had way too many layers of polish. :( I'd love to try this again though, and try to wait longer in between coats of polish.

I'm kinda excited about tomorrow's mani I have to show you! :) Animal print! Sadly tomorrow is the last day you'll be seeing my nails at a length that I actually like. :(

Thank you Bec! <3 I can't wait til my nails grow long again so I can do more manis like this, I don't think I'd like it on short nails!
