NOTD ft Striping Tape

Currently listening to: Higher Window by Josh Groban

Hello girls!

Today I'd like to show you yet another bow manicure but this time with an added extra: striping tape.

I wore this manicure for two days and kept it simple for the first day: two coats of Pink Spice by Accessorize with my accent finger stamped using m59 and Barry M Gold Nail Effects:

Excuse the background in the photos; I had to take these in my car.


On the second day I decided to add gold striping tape along the tips of my nails:

I think the effect is quite striking and I'll definitely need to keep this design in mind for future Christmas-themed manicures!

Although the tape is sticky on the reverse, I found it best to place it on top of a topcoat as otherwise I found the sides of the tape came loose from my nail very quickly.

Have you used striping tape before? Do you like this manicure?

Bye for now,
Laura
