Crumpets Nail Tarts: May Tri-Polish Challenge Day 2

Hey y'all, it's Lisl.  It's a little late now (I mean as I'm writing this, not as you're reading it. I don't know your life), so I'm going to keep this quick!  This is my second manicure for the Tri-Polish challenge this month.  

(Tri-Polish Challenge recap: there are three official colors for the challenge every month, I pick three polishes corresponding to those colors and create four manicures using those colors!)

I started with a base of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White Out, then made every design I could think of with striping tape!  Then, I used a nail as a dotting tool to fill in the spaces made by the tape with my three Tri-Polish Colors this month: 

 OPI Quarter of a Cent-Cherry, Butter London Blagger, and Cover Girl Non-Stop Stone.

When I was applying my top coat (Essie Good to Go), I accidentally smudged my middle finger with a giant red streak :(.  So I kind of splooged some more White Out on there, not super elegant!

I really love it though, especially the pattern on the messed up middle finger!  I think I might revisit that one some day soon. Y'all should check out everyone else's manicures. They are super great!

    1. Thank you! It's my first time doing a striping tape pattern and I'm pretty happy with how they turned out.

  2. Wow this is really great some very crisp lines :D Great job! :D

    1. Thanks! I think I just got lucky. I can never figure out why sometimes my tape manis work and other times they're disastrous.
