Today I was in the mood for something fun, so when I was searching through my collection of inspirations and came across this, I knew I had found a winner. Sara is my bestest friend (so you should all be checking out her blog). She loves finding awesome photos online and getting inspired by them. She found a really cool tape mani, and then tried it out for herself. Since imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, here is my interpretation of her interpretation of a funky french tape manicure!
The original picture used neon yellow and black. I totally loved the contrast of the bright yellow and the dark black so I decided to keep the colors. I wanted to add a little more color and fun so I added a rhinestone from a nail gem color wheel in no other color than hot pink, the color that Sara painted her funky french in! See what I did there?
Also I had a terrible split/break. So photos of my thumb will be scarce until it grows back a little. Hopefully my very bright and colorful nails will distract from the fact that my thumb nail is nothing but a nub. Ohh look bright colors, don't look at my thumb!
Here is what I used:
Hot Topic Nail Polish in a Neon Yellow (this polish doesn't have a real name)
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Black Out
Rhinestone nail gem color wheel
What do you think of my funky french tape mani? Does it reflect my inspirations?
Claws up! (Don't looks at my thumb!!)
