This was an exercise in futility for me as I was originally going to do a tape mani, but because I’ve been using the Elmer’s Glue method for the last few manis in order to save my hands from acetone, the tape actually lifted the nail polish from my finger! I only have scotch tape in the house so I had to try something else. I really loved Gini’s striped manicure so I thought maybe I could try that as an alternative. Hers turned out WAY better than mine! I just used a striper brush which I find doesn’t give the same effect as an actual bottle of striper polish. I can never get the polish distribution to be correct on the brush…so I figured I would try to emulate the ugliness of one of those sweaters with the random streaks of glittery thread in them!
I started off with Julep – Gayle last night thinking I would pair it with a massive bomb of glitter. Then, I just started painting on pastel colours and hoped for the best. I realized after I was finished that this reminded me a lot of my sugar spun nails! I was almost too embarrassed to post this, but the 31 Day Challenge is about trying new things and sharing the results!
