The One With the ILNP Mega X Tape Manicure

9:00:00 AM

Good morning Polished World!  Welcome to March!  Can you believe that the first two months of the year are already gone?  To be honest, I feel like January and February always fly right on by, then March and April draaaag.  That's because Spring is around the corner and I just want winter to end, but of course, it won't.  Mark my words, we will get another snow storm and possibly one ice storm before Spring.

Well since I did only pink nails last month, it's time for a little black, white, and silver manicure to refresh the blog so to speak.  I always need a little cleanse after I stick to certain colors, and for me the best way to do that is with these shades.  Of course, that means using my favorite polishes ever.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • ORLY - Liquid Vinyl
  • ORLY - White Tips
  • ILNP - Mega X

Isn't this amazing?  I absolutely LOVE Mega X and how it looks underneath black and white polish!  These tape manicures are something that I have loved creating for ages, and this one is no exception.  A year ago, I created this manicure where I used literally 100 pieces of tape to create the most perfect, awesome, X shaped tape manicure.  Since that manicure took forever to create, I didn't want to re-create it today, so I opted for the random zig zag look.  Looking back, I can't believe it was a year ago that I did that other manicure.

Anyways, just like the other manicure, Mega X truly shines under those black and white polishes.  The silver holographic is so strong that it truly gives the whole manicure a different dimension.  To get the look, I started with a base coat of Mega X.  I then went through and randomly added the tape almost in "Star" patterns.  You know, those stars you messily doodled as a kid on your notes in school?  That's what I was kind of going for.  Every nail mastered it except the index finger, not sure what happened there.

What do you think?  Love this look?  Think I should try the 100 tape design again but maybe with a different color scheme?

Until next time, <3.
