✩Classy✩ Fun Nails For A Not So ✩Classy✩ Evening :D

Tonight I'm dressing like a high class lady of the night all pretty for a good friends birthday!  Because if you're gonna be smashing back fancy beers you might as well look somewhat presentable.

I decided I wanted to do something with striping tape.  I already did a mani with it where I put the tape down, painted it, then removed it.  It was ok I guess.  But this time I wanted to actually use the tape in the manicure.  Originally I wanted to do this with red, but for some reason I just couldn't come up with a combo I was happy with.  So I went with blue.

First I did 2-3 coat of Ruby kissed Blue My Mind (Ba dum chhh...) depending on the finger, then I did a coat of Essie's Smooth Sailing starting half way up the nail-ish.  Next I used Chanel Graphite and did the tips the size I would usually for plain french tips.  Maybe a tiny bit bigger.  Finally after top coat I waited for it to dry a bit and then I placed the tape across and sealed it in with another layer of top coat.

This was super easy.  You can easily freehand each colour because the tape hides your flaws!

Yup I'm going to be the classiest dame at the ball.

  7. Love the striping tape on this. Is it hard to get the striping tape on straight? I'm kind of a big klutz when it comes to this stuff.

    1. Thanks! The first few were kind of hard but I figured out a way. On all the fingers that aren't thumbs place the cut end of the tape on the side of your nail closest to your thumb, press it down with your thumb. Keep your thumb on the tape and pull it across so it is taught with your other hand. If you notice it's not straight lift it up an place it down again. When it's straight cut the tape. The minute the tape is cut and flat on the nail that's when it's hard to fix.
