I love painting my nails. I know not everyone enjoys it as it can sometimes be a massive pain waiting for it to dry etc, but when I have the time, it is one of those tasks I really enjoy.
Today I had some time on my hands, and decided I would experiment with some scotch tape - I have tried before but it didn't end well!
(apologies for the picture quality - there's literally no natural lighting at the min!)
The colours I used were both by Barry M - 272 'Shocking Pink' and 293 'Grey'. The tape I used was Scotch tape as I've found it's less sticky than normal sellotape so it doesn't seem to pull your nail polish off as much!
I was going to do a sort of "half and half" effect on every nail, but decided that was too time consuming so just did it on both my ring fingers.
I painted my nails with 2 coats of Shocking Pink, and waited for it to completely dry. Then I stuck a small peice of tape on my finger so that the bottom of the nail was covered and the tip was showing. I then painted the Grey over the ring finger nail, and waited until that was completely dry before removing the tape.
This was what I ended up with!
I know it's not the neatest manicure ever, but I am quite pleased with how it turned out!
I think I will try this again with different colours to see what works together :)
