Monkey See, Monkey Do--Lucy's Stash!

Hi Everyone and welcome to the the Digit-al Dozen's dreaded tape mani week!  OH MY GAH readers I just do not like tape mani's!  They are SO time consuming!  The easiest thing to work with tape wise is striping tape.  It doesn't pull up your polish, forms perfect to your nails, but is tiny!!! Tiny!!!! Tiny!!!  So it's SO hard to deal with.

BUT it's the Digit-al Dozen's theme this week so I'm in it whether I'm good at it or not!

Today I did my best to copy someone I get a lot of cool inspiration from Lucy's Stash.  I don't often have the same polish as she does so I just do my best to come up with something similar and that's what I did today.  I hauled out my never before used OPI NYPD Beet and and unnamed Hema polish I have to create this
One thing I noticed today that I don't see very often is some tip shrinkage with Seche Vite
I'm guessing it's due to the Black Label OPI
It's a lovely color though!  And the only "beet" I can have while doing low carb!
For Lucy's design she used Illamasqua Charisma and Creator check out a picture of her manicure
I really like this little Hema I have so I'm definitely going to snag Creator if I can!  Make sure you check out Lucy's original post HERE

As for the rest of the poor souls doing Tape Mani week let's take a look!
