Dim Sum Fun


Hi everyone! I felt like doing something fun on my nails, using one of my favorite color combinations: pink and blue. The fuchsia I used is OPI Dim Sum Plum, an amazing polish. It's simply perfect and a one-coater, hooray! Since I'd planned to do some taping for my accent nails, I chose for a base color that's pigmented and with a short drying-time, H&M Coral Summer. So shortly after Coral Summer dried, I was able to place tape strips on the surface to create the stripes, using Essence Chuck. Again a very pigmented color, really useful to do tape manis with, whether you're using it as your base or layering color. Guess that's about it, thanks for stopping by!

  11. Question: Have you ever thought of using colored tape so you can see where you applied it better? I was using the clear tape I had at home and had a hard time seeing it when it was on the nail. However I would think colored tape would fix this?

  12. Thanks everyone!

    @nail loopy: Thanks for the award! :)

    @Super cute super easy: Aahw, that's so great to hear, thanks :) I also checked out your blog, it's lovely!

    @Anonymous: If colored tape works for you, then you should definitely use it. I personally never had problems with the clear sellotape I use, so why change a winning horse, right? ;-)
