Nail Challenge Day 12: Tape Mani

Stripper tape anyone? I was lucky enough to stumble upon stripper tape at a recent nail trade show and decided to use this for what else but a tape manicure :) It is pretty easy to use just make sure you have a sharp scissors at hand to cut clean edges.


Get the Look:
1.Apply your base coat and then one thick coat of Kleancolor Catch Me, a creme turquoise polish. 
2. Allow this to dry fully! There should be no tackiness or the tape will stick to the polish and grab off the polish on its removal.
3. Using a sharp pair of scissors cut your stripper tape into about 1 inch lengths. You want the tape to be long enough to have pieces hanging off. This is what you will use to pull the tape off the nail.
4. Apply your tape into whatever pattern you desire. Keep a note on the order placement of your tape. You will remove the tape in the opposite order. 
5. Now with your tape in place. Apply a contrasting colour, I used Kleancolor Jewelry Red. 
6. Once you have fully painted over your tape and base colour, use a tweezers to immediately remove the stripper tape, in the reverse order you applied the tape onto the nail bed. 
7. Clean up any polish spill overs and seal in with your favorite top coat :)

Maybelline Color Tattoo and Loreal Infallible Eyeshadows! Plus More!!!

I can go for weeks, maybe a month without buying new makeup. I have that discipline but all that goes to south (I’m a north girl) when new products come out to play and particularly when I was literally stalking the stores to see if there was a sighting of the new Maybelline color tattoos. Come back next month. Ask me again in two weeks time. These were the comments I kept getting but finally there are here and what better way to celebrate their arrival by going nuts and buying their showcase neighbours as well, the Loreal infallible eye-shadows. I love Pennywise!
