Tape Mani Monday: Spacey nails

Hi everyone!

Today’s nails were originally intended for last month’s tri-polish challenge, but then I got a bit sick and didn’t get a chance to do the other manis for it, so I just saved them up for a normal post 🙂

It was just something about the colour combination and the stripes – I could see the uniforms of space travellers in a really low-budget movie looking like this! Haha 🙂tape-mani-tip-top-nail-chic-surfer-girl-and-cha-cha-cha-with-essence-here's-my-numberThe two base colours I used were Tip Top Nail Chic Surfer Girl (the purple) and Cha Cha Cha. I didn’t tape these off or anything, I just painted them onto the parts of the nail I wanted them, I knew any dodgy border lines would be covered anyway. I added a top coat and once they were dry, I used striping tape to mark off the triangles and stripes. I then painted over with Essence Sand Effect Here’s My Number. This is my favourite of the Essence textures, it’s the perfect shade of grey and it’s just filled with holographic particles!tape-mani-tip-top-nail-chic-surfer-girl-and-cha-cha-cha-with-essence-here's-my-numberThis was a pretty simple and uninspired design, but I think the colours work great together so I like it. I hope you do too!
