Do you ever have one of those days where you need to do something to your nails so you have something to post, but you really love the mani you’re wearing? I really didn’t want to take off this pink and orange gradient. I love how bright and colorful it is. I could be an air traffic controller with these nails. I heart them!
I really needed to do something to post for you guys today though. I was sitting on the couch thinking about this dilemma and it came to me. This lattice tape mani. This baby was a pain in the you know what! I’m glad I chose to only do it as an accent. I started out trying to do this with Scotch tape, but couldn’t cut it thin enough or straight enough. So I busted out the striping tape. I wish striping tape was stickier. I had a hard time getting it to stick around the edges.
Once I got all the tape placed and tucked in to the edges, I polished a coat of China Glaze Liquid Leather, then carefully pulled off each strip of tape one at a time. I love this, especially over a bright gradient. However, I probably won’t be doing this again any time soon, just because it was a bit of a hassle.
