The Lacquer Ring – Striping tape mani

Cynthia picked Striping tape mani’s as our TLR nail art theme.

Ugg!! So I did my striping tape mani the other day and I hated the way it came out so I did it again and this time hated it even more! 😦 It’s crazy how the simplest things you would think would come out awesome, not in this case for me.

I used OPI glitter off base coat first because I wanted to use glitter texture polishes I figured I’d give that a shot. I painted one coat of Zoya’s Cosmo a glittery texture, and then I did stripes of Darling Diva’s Anna over that. Once dry I used various lines using striping tape and did one coat of Zoya Sunshine. As these are all mostly all texture polishes, as it dried I tried to flatten it a little if that makes sense so that it wasn’t too clumpy. I think it was just too much texture, I feel like it still looks too clumpy! 😦  I then took a few pictures of it with top coat just to see and I hated that even more ::sigh::

So unfortunately today you only get one picture and that’s of todays #TLR mani. My fail. 😦

Well there you have it. Here is my TLR Striping tape mani. Don’t forget to check out the other girls and stop back for Stamping Saturday! I have new pretties coming in today and hopefully my new stamps will be in too 🙂

Textured Tuesdays – Cosmo in the Morning

For most of you that have been following my blog for a while know that you don’t see many textured looks here… I have never been a big fan. My polish girls, Lesley, Amy, Jess, Nic, Sib, Fross, and Cynthia finally talked me in to it and now I have quite a few in my collection; So far mostly Zoyas and a couple of OPI’s.

Amy from The Fancy Side has decided to start a new theme on Tuesday’s for anyone interested and it’s called Textured Tuesdays. Head on over to her blog to add your nails to the link every Tuesday.

I wasn’t able to participate in week 1 so this is week 2. I did Zoya Cosmo on all fingers and accented one nail with OPI’s 4 in the Morning.
