Tape Mani Monday: Tape and Studs

Hi everyone!

Today I have another tape mani for you combined with fun studs from the Born Pretty Store.

This look was inspired by this post from Magnifique nails. She used the more neon studs while I went with the slightly more pastel set and I used Sally Hansen Sugar Coat textured polishes instead of neon polishes. I also added a round stud in between the square ones. striping tape with sally hansen sugar coat bubble plum, cotton candies, razzleberry, sour apple, and born pretty store pastel studs

I started with a coat of Sally Hansen Black Out, then once it was dry I taped up my nails and added 2 coats of each textured polish. From thumb to pinkie, they are Sally Hansen Sugar Coat in Cherry Drop, Sour Apple, Cotton Candies, Razzleberry, and Bubble Plum. striping tape with sally hansen sugar coat bubble plum, cotton candies, razzleberry, sour apple, cherry drop, and born pretty store pastel studs

With a stripe of top coat down the centre of the nail, I added the studs. I tried to cut a stud in half to fit on my pinkie, which sort of worked, but I couldn’t get it perfect. striping tape with sally hansen sugar coat bubble plum, cotton candies, razzleberry, sour apple, and born pretty store pastel studs

These nails are pretty busy but I loved them! What do you think?

      Thank you! I’m not sure where you’re from but it took aaaages for the textured Sally Hansens to appear here (in South Africa). I hope you manage to find them somewhere too 🙂
