The Digit-al Dozen Does Tape Mani's--Opposites Attract!

Hi Everyone--Happy Hump Day!!!  Thank God we are in the middle of the week!  3 tape mani's down and only 4 more to go!  I didn't really love this one as much as I'd hoped and it bummed me out because I used 2 of my elite polishes!  I hauled out my gorgeous Illamasqua Baptiste and Nfu-Oh 51 and tried to work some magic.  I went for some matte and shiny squares and while all my coworkers ooohed and aaahed over this yesterday it fell rather flat for me
I also learned the very valuable lesson of making sure you don't have any remnants of hair spray on your fingers before you take pics--my pinkie looks a bit dull
Normally matte flakies are really gorgeous, I just don't like the looks of this

No matter how hard I tried I felt my lines were not crisp enough.

Sometimes it's good to discover your limitations--I joked with the girls the other day saying if I'm the gradient queen when it comes to tape manis I'm definitely the tape mani peasant!

I have been loving what everyone else comes up with though, so perhaps like last weeks neon I'll learn to embrace tape manis (although I seriously doubt it!)


  1. I do like it, i love the way the flakies look red and green on one nail, I thought it was different polishes entirely!

    1. This is pretty much word for word what I was going to say!!! That's exactly why I like it, too <3

  2. Okay, now I'm REALLLLY in love with this one :)
