Tape mani Monday: Textured triangles over neons

Hi everyone!

So another Monday has rolled around… UGH! The good news is I have another manicure which I love to show you, once again using my trusty striping tape.

I started off by creating more-or-less triangular shapes using some neon colours – Nails Inc Kensington Park Road (blue) and Holland Park (purple), L.A. Colors Color Craze in Mint – although it’s a neon light green and not really mint at all – and Essence Colour & Go in Flashy Pumpkin.

I don’t really like the texture of the leather effect polish on its own, but used in nail art like this, I LOVE it. This look was inspired by a similar look done by Manicurity, although I went for much brighter colours underneath and black rather than holo grey on top.
