I have learned to take pictures part way through a mani because there is a great chance that I will mess up... there have been many a failed manicure that couldve been posted if only I had documented the journey... anywho. This is one thick coat of American Apparel T-Shirt. I have been on a mission to find a one coat white, and after hearing everyone rave about their black I thought "what the heck?" Glad I did because I like this so much more than OPI Alpine snow or even Konad's white. I used two rows of striping tape to make a thicker line here and the black is my favorite Liquid Leather.
The pink is some random Color Club. I hate how their huge sets from Ross never have names on them.
This was a pain and the pictures look so messy... This took forever and you have to wait for everything to dry before you apply the tape URGH!!!! I hated doing this, but it came out kinda pretty! However, I feel like manicures are supposed to be fun, not a pain in the ass... so I only did these four fingers then wiped it clean and went with a solid. If I was doing this on someone else I think I would have enjoyed it more, and probably would have done a better job. I have more patience for other people than I do myself. It did come out really nice for a concept. I think if I did it again I would only use one row of striping tape when I got to the pink layer, so that the black and white was just peeking through, and maybe diagonal stripes.
