November Nail Art Challenge: Tape Mani

Yesterday was the next theme for the November Nail Art Challenge created by CaliforNails.

I haven't done too much with nail tape - it had usually ended in disaster before!  It would either peel the polish up underneath it when I removed it, or wasn't pressed down enough and polish leaked underneath it, or the ends started coming up on the sides moments after putting the tape down.  Yeah, we didn't get along too well :P

So when this theme came around, I wasn't too thrilled about it...but knew I wanted to give it another shot!  Here is the design I came up with:

A little Easter in colors, but it still turned out nicely!  And I happened to have nail tape in colors that matched the polishes, so it worked out well :)  I'm pretty happy with it!  Though I will say - the darn ends of the tape started coming up on the sides the next morning (and I did this design in the evening shortly before bedtime).  I'm thinking it might had stayed down had I put a topcoat over it - but I wanted a matte look for the polish to contrast the shiny of the tape.  An experiment for next time!

Have a wonderful Tuesday!  See you soon <3
