Tape Mani Thursday!

Hey y'all!  Today I have a tape mani to share.  This was done using Klean Color White, Wet and Wild Black Creme and China Glaze Aquadelic...and tape. :)



This was my first attempt at this kind of tape mani, the others I've done were pretty simple.  I used Nailside's Double Lightning Bolt tutorial, HERE.  With drying time and cutting the tape and getting the tape positioned right, it took about an hour and a half for both hands.  I love how it turned out, it's probably my favorite mani I've done in a while.

This mani was part of a group challenge so be sure to check out all of the awesome Tape Mani's below.  :)

    1. Thanks! It really isn't very hard at all, it's just time consuming. I cut my tape into a squares and then cut 4 triangles out of the squares and got the perfect angle from the smallest angle of the triangle. The tape I used is 1 inch wide. It looks intimidating but it's really not.
