Mish Mash Challenge - Tape.

Howdy Ladies and (hopefully) Gents!

I am late for this entry; what an irony... I was hardly late on the ABChallenge, but now that I'm on holidays it's another story. I was posting on time in my head though, and the 16 ladies before me were ahead of their game, until I realized it was a little too optimistic, and that Wednesday was actually... yesterday. Bravo!

Tape. I love tape. I love it because it's easy to use and it gives straight and perfect lines. Me loves lines. So, of course, by association the love story was all set and done beforehand in my head.

Quoting a series I've been watching recently, "this is my design":
The metallic blue is OPI Swimsuit... Nailed it!, sent to me by the lovely Jenni, the neon green is from Tokalon and the neon pink is Nfu-Oh FS12. As a base for my two accent nails I used Kiko Nude. What else?

Those nails were lucky enough to get to see World War Z; geee I haven't been that excited to see a movie since... since a movie from the Twilight saga. Please don't hold it against me? Liked (though not loved) the movie. It was lacking zombie-nails shots.  

Take care,

M.

  1. Love your tape mani and don't worry, I was late with week one and I am late with week two - oops!

    I read Twilight, too, they sucked me in but they're not a great example of good writing ;)

  3. 'It was lacking zombie-nails shots' - I thought the same hahahah
    Those zombies were just way too fast to let us see any ragged skin or rotten teeth! Where's the fun in that then? ;)
    As for you mani, it's a fab one, I love the neons matting the nude shade and the arrow tape design looks fantastic on your gorgeous (GORGEOUS) nails! :D

  10. I love this mani!!! I'm kinda 50-50 with tape, I like how the design looks with its proper use, but that's exactly it: I suck so bad at using it!!! I always manage to screw it up so I just gave up on the damn thing. I'd rather see it on other people =)))

  13. Love love love these! They look amazing!
    I'm usually too lazy to use tapes but designs turn out so much better with this techniques so I also try to use it more often. The neons are super stunnging as well here.
    I haven't watched World War Z yet but somehow I'm not so interested in it as well. If it's really that good, please let me know, maybe I'll change my mind ;)

  20. This is so awesome!!!!! Swimsuit is one of the best blues ever, and I love, love, love, the neon over nude!

  22. Love it! And I'm still loving that nail shape on you! WWZ was good, I thought, though it did suffer from lack of zombie nails.

  24. LOL, re: no zombie nail shots!

    These are some kick-ass neon striped nails, M!

    It also helps that you've got these AAA-cool stilettos going on over there in Espania!!!

    Geez, woman...they are hot!

    Great color combos, I LOVE the wide stripes, and stilettos! Perfection!

    1. Thank you Lisa :D hahaha I am digging the stilettos a lot! How come I didn't shape my nails like that before?!

  25. I absolutely love this look! Your nails look super fierce. Fierce enough for me to vote for you always having stilettos actually. ;D

    1. Merci Sophia :D I thought I'd take off the stilettos once my holidays would be over but guess what? I am back at work and am still rocking those! No regrets!

  26. LOVE!!!
    And I agree with Gosia - I also have a tendency to somehow screw it up, but I love this technique so much that I just keep trying!
    And I totally love your design, color combo and shapes!

    and I don't think i'll go see World War Z...
