CG Prismatics and Stripping tape

As promised yesterday I have a striping tape manicure for you guys today. I was so excited to receive these after ordering them from eBay like a month ago!! I couldn't decided on a color combination so I decided to sue the striping tape for a tape mani. For this manicure I used not only 1 but 3 untried polishes!!!!

I started out with 2 coats of Orly Liquid Vinyl

Its really weird that I didn't like Orly After Party on myself the other day but how much I love pure black... Really boggles my mind lol. After the polishes dried I put the striping tape down creating the design I wanted.

Then one nail at a time I painted the China Glaze Prismatic color and then removed the tape right away :) And this is how it turned out.

On the Thumb and Pinkie is Prism, the Ring and Pointer is Optical Illusion and on the Middle is Liquid Crystal. I absolutely love the way this turned out. I think the black is really nice with it and love the double X design.

Hopefully tomorrow I have time to do the China Glaze Crackle Glitters if not it'll be up on Monday.

Thanks for reading <3

But if you guys want to see more awesome untried polishes head on over to some other lovely ladies in my birthday group!!!

  1. This looks so great! I absolutely love pure black, too, and I love how glossy that Liquid Vinyl is. I don't know why I don't own it yet.

    1. its my favorite black by far, you definatly need it!!

  2. Very cool, what a great tape manicure! I love this!

  3. Oh I LOVE Optical Illusion! I'm getting it in a swap soon - I've had to give up Luxe and Lush for it but then again there are only so many flakies you can have before you essentially have them all, LOL. It's so gorgeous and right up my alley :)

    I also wanted to let you know Ashley that you've been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award over at Polished Prisms. I'm so sorry if you've completed it before! If so just ignore me :P

    1. ooo nice cant wait to see what you do with it and thanks doll!!
