The Digit-al Dozen Does Tape: Pink and Glitter!

Press Sample Purchased by Me

Goooooooood Morning loves!

We're back at it this week with another rendition of The Digit-al Dozen! The theme this week is tape. Bleh, I do not like tape manicures. I generally end up getting annoyed with the tape and it sticks everywhere and I get frustrated. SO this week is going to be a challenge. I'm not entirely pleased with todays nails, but its a start!

Striping Tape Nails


I started out with China Glaze Bottoms Up from the new Sunsational Neons Collection on my first 3 nails and Cult Nails Tempest on my ring and pinky nails. On my thumb and index nail I tried to just get some stripes down with striping tape. I put the stripes down and then painted butter LONDON Fairy Cake over the tape then removed it. I forgot one of the cardinal rules of using tape to only do one nail at a time! So my index nail looks all wonky thick.

I was sick of tape by the middle nail, so I resorted to a glitter gradient. On my last 2 nails I attempted the watercolour technique with Bottoms Up to give those nails a softer look. Then I added some square silver studs from Born Pretty Store.

I think I liked these nails more in my mind than in reality, but it's a start to tape week! Hopefully I can pull out something a little better as the week goes on LOL!

What are your thoughts on these pink and glitter nails!? Check out the rest of the Digit-al Dozen below!

  5. I think these look fabulous, lovely and thick, not wonky at all! How do you do the watercolour technique??

    1. thank you! It involves placing dots of polish on your nail and then taking a big brush dipped in acetone and placing that on the dots to spread out the polish and take out some of the colour.

  6. Oh I like these! Are you using tweezers for tape? I've been practicing and the little snippits are a pain but tweezers help. I also still count it as a tape manicure even if I only have one nail done with it on each hand ;-)
