Mish Mash Challenge Week 2: Taping

Guess what day it is! Mish Mash Challenge day, of course! Bet you thought I was going to say something else, didn't you?

I was very excited for today's challenge, as I have only done a few taping manicures and I like doing them, although they are very tedious, in my opinion. For today's manicure I used Starburst from Avon's Cosmic collection as my base color, laid down my tape for my design and then painted over that with Black Out from Pure Ice.

I like how this came out, however I do wish that the tape strips were a little bit wider so more of Starburst was visible. I guess I could just put two pieces side by side to make it a tad wider. The striping tape that I used was from Fing'rs Heart 2 Art. Very easy to use I just had to be careful when I was trying to pull some tape out, so that I did not break it off. I figured out the hard way that you have to be very gentle when messing with it.

On to the photos!




Be sure to check out the manicures that the other Mish Masher ladies did for this week!
