Kimber’s Mish Mash Challenge: Favorite Nail Art Technique

26 Jan

Okay, I admit I’m a bit late posting this one — actually, I basically just finished my manicure like 10 minutes ago, but hey, I’m a busy lady.

This week’s mish mash challenge theme was “favorite nail art technique” which basically left me two choices — French tips or taping. I love, love, love French tips, but I had conveniently already painted my nails yesterday with China Glaze Turn It Up Turquoise, so I thought taping was the way to go.

I made this crosshatch looking by placing random strips of striping tape at different angles across my nails (I do my whole hand before I use polish — it’s easier that way in my experience), then I just painted over them, removing the tape as I went. As I mentioned, my base coat is China Glaze Turn It Up Turquoise which I applied in a flurry yesterday because I couldn’t, god forbidden, leave the house with bare nails, and the top coat is my January pick from Color Me Monthly: Seven Sisters.

I hope you all enjoyed my swatches from Lacquer yesterday, I’ve got another bout of swatching coming up because I just received some Rainbow Honey samples in the mail. I hope you’re all looking forward to another round of reviews!

Don’t forget to take a look at the other beautiful favorite technique manis from the challenge ladies!
