Happy Friday! Today I want to show you an easy way to get fancy manicures using sticky tape and a pair of scissors. Before I do let me show you Maybelline Forever Strong - Rose Poudre (130) wich I used as my base colour.
Rose Poudre is a pinkish nude polish with an amazing formula. It dries quickly and is easy to apply due to the flat brush. It is opaque in two coats and can be worn on its own or would make a wonderful base for a french manicure. In that case one coat would be enough.
Once my polish was perfectly dry, I used some sticky tape and some scissors with a serrated blade to cut it in half. I then put it on the back of my hand to take of some of the stickiness before applying it to my nails.
You can apply them any way you like, but for my mynicure I decided to use them like shown above. I then painted over one side of my nails with Max Factor - Diva Coral. I used two coats and removed the tape carefully immediately after applying the second layer.
With a dottingtool I added some polkadots along the waves, applied some topcoat to smooth out any edges and I had a fantastic and super easy manicure.
I really love those two colours together!
How do you like todays manicure? Have you ever done a tape mani?
