Flip Flop February-Day 27
Today, Jilltastic Nail Designs set us the challenge to Recreate Someone Else's challenge manicure.
That led to much enjoyable net-surfing, but I finally decided to recreate Tezzie's Day 8, Color Blocking manicure.
I don't have any of the polishes she used, but I have similar ones, so I started with a base color of Wet & Wild's I Need A Refresh-mint.
Then I taped off one side, or rather, I put some striping tape down the middle of the nail (post Seche Vite and some drying time.)
And then, rip!, off came the tape before the polish dried too much.
Next, I put a strip of tape horizontally across my nail, and then realized that I needed that original line back in, so that one got put back on.
And then again, quickly ripped off the tapes.
And then I used more Seche Vite.
That was my mistake.
I smeared the striping black on my middle finger, ugh.
Here is another picture of the finished product, more in the style that Tezzilicious showed hers.
I tell you, I could do another month's worth of manis with all the choices we all put up to copy!
Only one more day!
