Crumpet's 33DC: Tape Mani

Hi ladies!!

Friday finally!!  yay!!    How was your week?

Today's day of the Crumpet's 33DC calls for a tape mani.  I know there are a lot of people out there who really like this technique, but I absolutely hate it!!  I love the whole look of it but I just suck at it!  I always manage to peel the underlying polish, no matter how dry I think it is.  I don't put the tape on right and get the overlying polish under the tape.  It always turns out awful!  Including this time...  so sorry guys, I almost didn't want to post it because it took me 3 times to do this!!!  gah!!

In any case, what you see here are two polishes:  China Glaze "Agent Lavender" and China Glaze "Virtual Violet".


First I started with three coats of Agent Lavender, pastel periwinkle grey with somewhat thin formula.  My accent finger has 2 coats of Virtual Violet, a purple with scattered holo.  It dried semi-matte but came right to life with a topcoat.



I added two strips of tape across each nail except for the accent one.  I painted over with Virtual Violet which covered with only 1 coat.  I added 3 blue rhinestones to my accent nail to complete the look.  So sorry I messed up my tape mani AGAIN!! =(




Agent Lavender is part of China Glaze Operation Color released in fall of 2008.
Virtual Violet is part of China Glaze Tronica collection released in spring of 2011.

Well I hope you like this mani anyway even though it's far from perfect...  in the meantime, please check out the perfect manis from the other participants!!

Thanks so much for reading!!
