Catching Up: Peach Smoothie

I have another summer manicure that I did and never got to write about for you tonight.  I wanted to do something simple, yet eye-catching for this one so I went with a striping tape mani!
These colors worked fabulously together and I had no problems with application of either.  The biggest, most time-consuming, part of this is dealing with the tape.  I cut 40 pieces to do 4 nails!  Good times!
  • Revlon Peach Smoothie
  • Pure Ice Coral Reef
I used 2 coats of the Peach Smoothie to get a solid base color.  When that was dry, I added a layer of Seche Vite to harden the polish so it didn't dent when I put the tape on it.
Working one nail at a time, I laid down the tape where I wanted it, then painted 2 coats of Coral Reef on top and removed the strips of tape while the polish was still wet to ensure a crisp line.  Once that was dry, I finished it off with another layer of Seche Vite.

  1. I really like these two colors together!

  2. You're so sweet Lisa. :)

  3. Coral Reef is gorgeous! This is so pretty, but cutting up striping tape is quite possibly my least favorite thing in the world! lol

  4. Me too Sarah! I wish I could pre-cut some and store it someplace so it would be ready on a whim, but I have pets and their hair gravitates to sticky things. LOL
