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.
