Criss Cross

21 Apr

I’ve been playing around with striping tape a lot recently.  For these nails I started with a white base coat and then randomly painted on a coral, lime green, bright teal and magenta.  After that had dried I applied striping tape in a criss cross fashion, it’s a bit fiddly to do but I’m starting to get the hang of it now.  I painted over the tape with China Glaze Smoke & Mirrors (a kind of black with greenish glitter) and pulled the tape off whilst still wet to reveal the multicoloured coat underneath in a criss cross pattern.  To be honest I was a bit unsure about these half-way through when I only had multicoloured splotches on my nails but I think they’ve turned out okay!!
