Taped off minus Tape

Today I've got some nails to share with you that I did awhile ago and wasn't totally crazy about. I wasn't going to post them up here, but I know some of you have different tastes than me so here we go!

I think my mistake for these nails was not using tape to get crisp lines. I did all of it with just the polish brush, which was really fast to finish, but the lines not being perfect totally bothered me lol. From an arms length you couldn't tell, but up close I wasn't really feelin it. Also please excuse the smudge on my middle nail, I hit it right as I finished putting Seche Vite on and it showed up a lot more in pictures than in real life!

I started with a base of Color Club Angel Kiss the most perfect pastel green holo. One coat and you have a rainbow with hardly trying. I have 5 of the 6 Color Club holos, and I was going to swatch them, but you've all seen swatches so I'll just use them in cool ways like this! :) I added Essie Mesmerize on half of my nail, this was one of my first polishes I got when I started collecting and I still love it to pieces. Finally I added Sephora By OPI Never Enough Shoes in alternating diagonal stripes on half my nail.

I was really hoping the difference in finish of the three polishes, holo, creme and shimmer would come up and make this look super cool. I'm not sure it totally worked, what do you ladies think?

Well girls? Do you like this look, or are you like me and think there is something that just seems a little off?

Have a great day loves!

  2. Well, I like this look. Yes, tape would have made crisper lines but I'm sure that it's not that noticeable unless you are staring at your fingers! LOL
