Block party


Hey everyone! For today's post I have a new kind of tape mani to show you. I used China Glaze Four Leaf Clover as my base color and added a coat of Seche Vite to speed up the drying time. After it was dry I placed thin tape strips to create the black block pattern. I really love the final result, it's very graphical and so simple. This mani is easy to recreate, and if you don't have much patience you can just cut it down to one or two accent nails which is still nice to look at. Another good thing about tape manis in general is that you don't necessarily need your dominant hand to make them, because the tape's already taking care of the neatness. That's one thing less to worry about :) Hope you guys are also having really sunny weather today like here in Holland, going for a walk now, bye!

    I'm new to nails and just started my blog today, but I'm definitely going to try this tonight! I did the taping thing one other time and really liked it a lot.

  12. I really like this! It'd be quicker than a lot of tape manis, too, because you wouldn't have to do multiple tapings.
