A NOTD that matches my OOTD...

I don't normally match my mani to my outfit, but felt the need to the other morning. As you can see from the pic with my OOTD, Outfit Of The Day, I didn't do the accent nail yet. I had done that, later on in the day.
I used China Glaze Peachy Keen and just my black for my accent design. I also just wanted to try out a new tape idea I had.

Here is the finished mani


Here was my outfit. I just LOVE this ruffled blouse. I got it off of eBay, because I refused to pay retail for it from JCrew, lol. I'm cheap. Oh and excuse the ever so classy bathroom, cell pic.

Now with the accent finger. I really loved this design :)

  15. I love this look (ok, I love ALL of your manis.. seriously, you're so creative)!

    Question, though... My black takes two coats to cover. Is it ok to leave the tape on long enough to do the one coat, let it dry for a minute or two, then do a second coat? Or will leaving it on that long cause the polish to peel off with the tape? I've wondered this when it comes to all of your scotch tape manis- is it possible to do a second coat without destroying the look?

  16. Thanks girls!!

    Tracie, whenever a polish I use absolutely needs 2 coats, and I'm working with tape, I do the first layer semi thick, and then wait maybe about 20-30 sec, and do a 2nd coat, but you'll have to do the 2nd coat with a light hand, so you don't fudge up the 1st one. You don't want the base to dry completely, because when you pull the tape off, the base will come with it, and/or, your edges won't be straight and smoothe :)

  18. I love what you did with this design. I am going to try something similar on honor of Halloween. I'll probably need a couple of trial runs. Peachy Keen is on my order to Nail Polish Canada right now! Thanks for the inspiration!
