Tape Mani Monday: Essence sand effect polishes

Hi everyone!

As you may be aware, Essence’s Sand Effect polishes recently made it to South Africa. There are 3 shades – a nude, a red, and a dark grey – and all 3 got added to my collection. Today I’ve done some nail art featuring the red, Me & My Lover.

Tape Mani Monday: Criss-Cross reciprocal gradient

Hello ladies!

Another Monday… another tape mani! This is by far the best thing about Mondays!

Back before I started the blog, I tried a simple reciprocal gradient with just straight lines. I was really proud of it at the time, but unfortunately I didn’t photograph it well and I didn’t clean it up, but I loved the concept so I decided to try it again, this time with criss cross lines 🙂criss-cross tape mani reciprocal gradient with tip top nail chic grape to meet you, essie in the cab-ana, sinful colors cinderella (more…)

Tape Mani Monday: Silver and Studs

Hi everyone!

It’s Monday again, time for another tape mani! This weekend I helped babysit my boyfriend’s nephew and niece, who are the sweetest kids, but it did mean I didn’t get that much nail time, so I had to pull one out of the vault for this. That means poor photography, lousy photo editing, atrocious cleanup, and execution which leaves a lot to be desired – but at least the idea behind it was sound, haha. nails inc cambridge terrace with electric lane holographic topcoat with striping tape and studs (more…)
