Today I have here another great guest post! This time Nicole from Nail Polish Wars created layered tape manicure! Nicole does great nail art and shows that short nails can looks great too! Visit her blog and you'll love it as much as I do :) Here is her guest post:
Hi everyone! I'm so psyched to be posting here at Lucy's Stash!! I hope you like what I came up with!!
I started with two coats of China Glaze Flirty Tankini, a fun coral with a slight shimmer. The formula was a little thicker that I usually like, but it wasn't difficult to work with. I followed it with one coat of SV to keep it protected during the next step.
I taped off pointed sections of the top of my nail, and added one generous coat of China Glaze Towel Boy Toy, a bright blue creme with a slight shimmer. I then removed the tape immediately to ensure clean lines. I didn't add a top coat to this step.
I then applied two coats of Lush Lacquer Mr. Bubble, a clear coat with white, blue, and pink multi-sized hex glitters. The application was a breeze. The glitters were more than happy to come out of the bottle!! I finished it off with one coat of SV.
I really like the end result! The Flirty Tankini and Towel Boy Toy work really well together for contrasting colors, and Mr. Bubble is the perfect glitter to tie it all together!
Here's a macro shot to give you a better look!
I had so much fun making this for Lucy's Stash! I hope you all enjoyed it as well!!
