Manicure: Electric blue striping tape patterns

 

My manicure is a few days old already but I thought that I’d put it up on the blog. I was inspired by the Nailasaurus’ latest neon mani. Apologies for the slight tip wear on the nails. I think it’s time for a change sometime soon. I used Sally Hansen’s Pacific Blue that I picked up from the latest Priceline 40% off everything sale. I saw it sitting on its lonesome on the shelf and knew I needed it in my collection.

It’s a pretty electric blue shade with a hint of purple. If you know me you know I just can’t pass up on *any* shade of purple. Such a quick and easy mani that produces some pretty patterns. I’m a sucker for geometric lines.IMG_8868

Another shot of the manicure in the sun. As you can see, the lines aren’t as crisp as I’d like, but you don’t really notice them from afar.

What’s your fav nail colour at the moment?

    1. I was inspired by the technique on the Nailasaurus blogs – do a base coat, wait for it to dry, use striping tape (bought from eBay for cheap) to make pretty patterns, do a top coat, and peel the tape off. Then finish with a top coat. A little fiddly and time consuming, but it is so pretty in the end ;) haha
