Tape me up

Discovered a nail blog called nailside.

The designs are so cool and looked hard to do.

But the tutorials are really helpful and it turns out to be pretty easy to do.

Here is my first attempt and I didn’t do any photoshopping so you can see all the smudges and unclean lines.

Gold base with brown and blue overlay

Closeup. The blue polish (Faceshop BL604) is really cool, isn't it?

Closeup. Brown polish by Borghese

I can do my thumbs me! The brown one was a failed attempt as I cut the tape too thick and short.

Couple of things I noted while doing these designs:

-Cut the strips longer than you’ve intended

-Thin strips (2mm) look better but boy are they are hard to cut! Or maybe I just got bananas for fingers.

-Try not to be a miser and reuse the same strip for another finger, it causes jaggered edges. (I’m a scrooge.)
