My first 'taping' adventure.

I'd been hesitant to try the scotch tape mani trend just because my nails are curved pretty heavily so every attempt so far has just been a failure because it doesn't stick or it doesn't sit straight. But I forged through because I saw a design idea that was too cute to ignore so I bit the bullet and got to taping. Here's my nautical themed mani, a little early but I was hoping to will summer to come early by encouraging it with my nails.

The colors I used were China Glaze Bermuda Breakaway, Sally Hansen White On and China Glaze City Siren for the red heart.

Ugh, there was a little smudge on my middle finger that I couldn't get rid of. But do you see what I mean by the lines not laying totally straight? You can really see it on my middle finger. 

I LOVED how this looked but the process made me want to kick a pony. I won't lie, I did my left hand and had to go to bed before starting to work on the right one because the tape was driving me nuts. I loved the little heart in the corner though. I'll probably try to add that into others eventually.
