Art Deco

When I saw this post on Dressed Up Nails yesterday, I immediately fell in love with this design.  So I decided to attempt something I haven’t really done all that often: a striping tape mani.  It’s not perfect (I didn’t really think through the black tape on navy polish thing – could not see what I was doing), but I really like it!

I was already wearing OPI Yoga-ta Get This Blue, so that served as my base.  I thought China Glaze Hanging in the Balance (from the new Cirque de Soleil collection) would look great because it’s really similar to the color of the shimmer in YGTB.  I did one finger at a time, and probably should have taken a bit more time with it.

While I did copy most of the design, I changed it up a bit, mostly to make it a little simpler.  Also, because it’s the thought that immediately popped into my head when I was done: does anyone else see Boba Fett in my middle finger?

Overall, I really like how these turned out!  I think I need to do some more striping tape nails in the future.

  1. Oh my god yes to boba fett! My boyfriend tried to carve a boba fett profile into a pumpkin on halloween (and failed…i couldn’t help I was carving a triforce….which gives me a good idea for a mani) and the image was veryyy close to that nail art. Only your lines are much cleaner than his!

    • Hahaha. So glad I’m not the only one that saw it! I would have felt like even more of a nerd. That sounds like an awesome pumpkin idea! I might have to do Star Wars pumpkins one year… (And I cheated with striping tape. If I hadn’t, my lines probably would have looked a lot like your bf’s)
