Another Shredded Mani...

I had tried another Shredded mani using one of Funky Fingers 2010 Holiday glitters, Blitzen. It's sooo sparkly! I just used my regular black as well. It was waaaaaayyyy easier to see the actual shredded part in real life.

  4. I love your blog. It is evident that you are a polish fanatic and have so much fun with it (like me!) I was wondering though, is there a specific brand of scotch tape that you use? I have tried to use it in the past for frenchies, etc. and get leakage, even when I think I have the entire edge flat and adhered :( Any advise would be great, cause I really want to copy your shredded mani.

  5. Thanks ladies!
    didi, Awww, you are too sweet!! Thank you so much for everything sweet you said about me and my blog!!

    Redsalta, thank you!!! I am very much a HUGE polish fanatic. There is just so much you can do! For the type of tape I use. I ALWAYS use Scotch brand, gift wrap, satin finish. When doing them, you need to make sure you are kind of pulling on the tape tight, as you're placing it on the nail. I also don't have my whole nail taped, I just concentrate on the sides that I'm using for my design. With Scotch tape, since it's see thu, you can make sure that the edges are down correctly, with no tiny bubbles. If you refer to my 'Checkers Anyone' post, I have pics in there with just the tape on my nails, and you can see what I'm referring to. Thanks again, and please let me know how it works out.
    XOXO Erika

    As for my cuticles, I don't really do much, other than push them back multiple times a day, lol. Maybe once a month, every few months, I will get on an oil kick, lol.
