31 Day Nail Challenge | 12 Tape Mani


Hello! This post was supposed to be for Saturday, but I was so busy this weekend that I didn't have time to do my nails! Thankfully, much has been accomplished and I will only be semi-busy next weekend. 

Saturday's challenge was to create a tape mani. I painted my nails Essie's Maximillian Strasse Her, placed cut triangle pieces of scotch tape on my nails and then painted Essie's In The Cab-Ana over the triangles before peeling them off. This was nothing too fancy, but I've been wanting to try out these Essie polishes. Since I hadn't bought any nail polish since last year, I treated myself to a few Essie polishes. 

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and hope you have a beautiful week!

If you haven't seen what my lovely fellow challengers came up with for day 12, please take a look:

Masha @ Lost in Lacquer
