#33DC Day 3: Tape Mani

#33DC stands for the 33 Day Challenge! This is hosted by Debbie Crumpet and run on the Facebook page Crumpet's Nail Tarts!

So today is Day 3 and the theme is Tape Mani. I am horrible at Tape Manis but I did my best and I found a tutorial that worked great for me. (Ironic I know because I did my own tape mani tutorial!) The tutorial I used was from The Nailasaurus. The part in her tutorial that really worked for me was the fact that she stated to remove the tape quickly in the direction placed while the nail polish is still wet! Usually I wait for it to dry because I thought it would be easier on the design. How wrong was I! So here's my tape mani.

So as my base I used Mentality Rascal. It's a black matte polish that covers in one coat and I absolutely love it (: I put on my tape and covered with a coat of Ruffian Hedge Fund. Hedge Fund is a matte green polish with gold shimmer. I believe I got it in my latest Birchbox. The reason why they don't look matte was because I went over it with a shiny top coat. I don't have my matte top coat with me at the moment. I want to apologize for my pointer finger! Apparently I did not let the black polish dry enough and when I pulled off the tape it pulled off the black polish as well. I left it like this not because I got lazy but because I wanted to show that I'm not perfect and things happen. With practice you get better. For a tape mani you have to do it one finger at a time to get the best results.
