The One With the Purple and Silver Tape Manicure

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world and Happy Sunday!  Hope you all are doing well today.  The weather here is starting to level out.  It's no longer below zero, but honestly it feels colder to me when it's 40 degrees and the snow is melting.  That dampness is just awful.  Constant chills.  And no, I do not have the flu, I'm just always cold.

Today's manicure is one I did actually right before I started my Christmas nails.  I probably could have posted it in the beginning of December and said it was like a present themed design, but to me it really was more tribal.  The colors though have that December present look.  Really though, it works any time in the winter.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • INM - Futuristic Fantasy
  • OPI - This Crown Needs a Gown
Futuristic Fantasy by INM is such a gorgeous royal purple color.  Is royal purple even a thing?  Seriously though, to me it's the royal blue of purples.  Two coats and full coverage.  The shine is incredible!  Maybe it's because I added a top coat of Out the Door, but it truly is one of the shiniest polishes that I own.

It dried super fast so I was able to do the tape design without having to wait a long time for my base to dry.  I applied the tape pieces (which was a pain for this design) and added my favorite silver polish - This Crown Needs a Gown.  I need to go to a discount store and see if they have any of these lying around.  The easier option would be for OPI to re-introduce it.

What do you think?  Like this design? Like the color?

Until next time, <3.
