Last night I had attempted to do some tape designs with nail polish, inspired by Chloe’s Nails amazing designs, but it didn’t really work out for me. I picked the wrong choice of a nail polish, and no matter how long I left it to dry (even after a half hour and a few sprays of quick dry finishing spray & a fast dry top coat), each time I put a piece of tape on my fingernail, it lifted my polish off and I would have to redo the nail. Orly Cotton Candy is a gorgeous color, but not a huge fan of the formula. It’s the type of polish that dries like soft plastic and you can make dents in it a long time after it is dry.
So, my “tape design” was a complete fail and I decided to freehand what I envisioned. I love taupe and peach-pink together, so after two coats of Orly Cotton Candy, I applied Love & Beauty Taupe on an angle to the tips of my nails. Then, I applied a white line with a nail design pen and Wet n Wild glitter over the taupe & white line. Then, finished it off with Sally Hansen Insta’ Dri Top Coat.
The outcome was okay, I wish the lines were more precise. I’ll be attempting to do this again but with a different polish, that dries faster.
