Sparkling Geometric Nails

Painted Fingertips | Striping tape blocked nails

Hi everyone!

Yesterday was a public holiday here in South Africa so I never got around to posting anything, so you get a post today instead. I wasn’t sure what to call today’s post, I just decided it was about time to have some fun with some striping tape again.

Once it was dry, I applied striping tape at random angles over my nails and painted over it with OPI It’s Frosty Outside. I carefully peeled away the tape and that was it!Painted Fingertips | Striping tape blocked nailsBetween the geometric shapes and the sparkliness, what’s not to like?
