Time to rock!


Good evening, y'all! Today I have another tape mani for you! (Anyone getting tired of them already? Lol.)
The base color I used is China Glaze Designer Satin, a lovely dark magenta. On top I applied It's Time To Rock from Sephora. I purchased it yesterday and I'm so glad I did because it's one of my favorite polishes already! It's Time To Rock is a multichrome foil, with a dark silver base and depending on the light it has hints of blue and pinkish purple and every shade between that. The picture below isn't completely color accurate but it's the best I could do.
Another thing I love is the tape pattern, which is so simple to create. All you need to do is cut tape strips in random sizes and apply them randomly underneath each other on the nail. So it's almost as effortless as the laser mani, but even more because you don't have overlapping strips therefore little to no chance of messing up. Guaranteed win! So I'll be doing this design more often :)
And as you can see, I didn't apply topcoat, but I kind of like the uneven surface, it actually makes the design quite playful. Thank you for reading!

  1. Another great one! I get what you mean about not having the overlapping tape. When I did that one laser type of mani I kept forgetting exactly which of the tapes were on top and was sure I was going to pull something off wrong.

    I LOVE this one. Another one I'm itching to try! I really need more polish so I can experiment more. Maybe I'll win a giveaway at some point! haha
