Tape Mani - Lightning Bolts

This is my second tape mani that I have attempted and I'm super happy how it turned out! The tutorial I used for this mani is from Nailside, she is a tape master! Visit her site for this mani and much more! For this mani I used Wet n Wild Black Creme as a base and I used Wet n Wild Silvivor for the tips as well as Buffy the Violet Slayer. Buffy the Violet Slayer is too beautiful for my camera but you can see a true color swatch here


I had used scotch tape for my first tape mani, but went to grab the roll and saw it was empty. Plan B was set in motion and I grabbed the duct tape and hoped it would turn out, and it did! I also liked the duct tape because I have deep ridges along the sides of my nails and the duct tape is pliable enough to stay put there. I decided on an accent nail with the double lighting bolt and I love it. 

Have you guys tried a tape mani yet?
