Double V


Hi guys! I haven't been able to do much nails lately, so I have something from the vault to show you. This mani was made with my new favorite to-go polish: H&M Deep Deep Water. It's been sitting in my drawers for ages, just waiting to be discovered, and now it has been. Pictured is only one coat. One coat of perfectly pigmented, blurple metallic polish. And it dries fast too. ♥ But as pretty as it is, I like my manis with a little extra. ;-) So later I added the triangles with tape. I started with a gold triangle, and when it was dry I made a black one inside, and repeated these steps at the cuticle area. Slowly building everything up with layers. You can imagine this took a while, with so many triangles to dry. But if you're watching your favorite TV show at the same time, there really isn't much patience needed. ;-) Thanks for reading!

  8. I think you have earned the title "tape manicure master." I don't know of anyone or any blog who can do a tape manicure as clean, neat, and come up with creative ideas like you!

  16. Waw ! I love that, double triangles are such a good idea

  17. This looks absolutely stunning! I'm 14 years old, I live in Belgium and I would love to become such a great nail artist as you are! Striping tape manicures are still very difficult to me, the polish always gets under the tape :s
    So I have a question, what sort of tape do you use?

    1. Hi, thanks for your sweet comment! ^_^ The tape I use is just regular, transparent, stationery tape. You could try pulling the tape a little bit when you're applying it on the nail, to make sure there's no space underneath it for polish. Hope this helps! :)

    2. Thank you! And would you recommend pulling the tape off before or after the polish is completely dry?

      Delete
    3. Definitely before! When you let it dry, it might get stuck to your tape and be pulled off with the it. :(
