This is so simple but I really love how it turned out. I am always leery of the striping tape...
I used my usual base coat to protect and strengthen my nails and added 2 coats of Spirit to each nail. Once that was dry, I topped it off with a layer of Seche Vite to harden the polish so I didn't smudge anything with the tape when creating the stripes.
I used a piece of masking tape for the larger portion. I always try to remove some of the stickiness from that tape to help make sure there is no evidence of the taping. I used the thin striping tape for the other lines. Working on one nail at a time, I only needed one coat of Smoke & Ashes. What a beautiful black with some green shimmer in it! I removed the tape while the polish was still wet to aid in getting crisp lines.
I might be late in posting for this week, but I hope you like it as much as I do. Thanks for stopping by. :)
