Nail Polish Blogger Challenge
If you aren’t yet following my facebook page, here’s the link – there are picture albums of my swatches and I heard a little bird sing that there’ll be a giveaway soon!
Today, for the final day of the challenge, I wanted to really, really, really challenge myself. Those of you who have been following my blog for a longer time will know that I’m at war with tape manicures. They never really work for me, maybe because I’m too impatient, or maybe because I just don’t do it right. As this is a challenge, I decided that my last post has to be one with a tape manicure, to prove to all of you that I really was challenging myself!
Well, enough with all the talk, here is 2 coats of “my” pink, OPI Do you think I’m Tex-y?, with some scotch tape design over it. The black I used is Illamasqua Scorn, because it’s a one-coater and it dries quick (because it’s matte).
You can see that my index finger worked out really ok, while I had some struggles at the middle and ring finger… And since I’m a very precise person, I had to do something about that, because I kept on being annoyed with myself that it didn’t work out like Chloe’s tape manicures! So I added one coat or OPI Rent. I like that much better!
And then my head went crazy and I wanted to see how it would look like if I put crackle polish over it, so I grabbed my Pure Ice Crackle in Hot Couture, and here is what that looked like:
I think that looks rather wild. I wanted to show you the result, but this is not a submission to the challenge, as you can’t really see “my” pink anymore, and that was one of the rules! I should have left it be anyhow, because OPI Rent over the Scotch tape manicure looked quite nice.
What do you think about tape manicures? Did you enjoy the 7 day PINK Challenge? I’d love to hear your thoughts on the challenge, as I do feel up for another one in the future (with a different colour though – I never thought I’d say that about a Pink, but I’m happy to wear something else tomorrow!!).
Last day, and all the ladies are giving their best!
