The One With the OPI Tape Manicure

9:00:00 AM

Hello polished world!  It's a Tuesday, yes I know,  I failed at doing a Monday, Wednesday, and Friday post this week.  I have a good excuse is super busy.  Okay, it's not the greatest excuse, but my mind was kind of pre-occupied with a renovation that we are doing that I forgot about the blog.  And then I went into work and one of the kitties that we have needs to be put down.  So you know, it's all around a busy, mind filled time.

Today I'm sharing a fun tape gradient manicure that I did a few weeks ago.  I don't know what it is, but I love when I have blue nails.  I always end up starring at them and honestly, I can't explain it, I just can't ever stop looking at them.  This manicure was no exception.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • OPI - My Pal Joey
  • OPI - I Believe in Manicures
OPI makes such wonderful blue polishes.  Every time they have a blue in their collection, I run out and grab it because I have yet to have a bad one.  I really didn't need I Believe in Manicures since I have about 10 different blues in that light pastel shade, but since it was an OPI one, I told myself I needed it.  I'm honestly kicking myself that I didn't grab another bottle because it really is quite gorgeous.  On it's own it covers in two coats.  I was a little nervous that it wasn't going to sponge or show up well on top of My Pal Joey, but it did a great job.  No problems, easy peasy, pretty mani.

My Pal Joey is one of my all time favorite blue polishes.  I do have back ups of this pretty, yet I still don't wear it because I don't think that two bottles is enough.  It's a great pedicure polish in the summer with a holo top coat. Covers perfectly in two coats.  And dries super fast so I was able to do this fun tape design.

You know, the fun tape design that took me forever to do.  A lot of bloggers are now using nail vinyl stencils which you just place this design over the nail, but I don't own any of those so I had to go the old fashioned route....nail art tape.  That's right, each line was done using a strand of tape.  My OCD needed them to be perfect, and I think I did a pretty dang good job.

What do you think?  Like this manicure?  Think I should do it with other colors??

Until next time, <3.
