Rainbow Bright

I don’t know what happen, but I felt a strong urge to do some rainbows on my nails. I didn’t want to do the same thing over and over so I did different rainbow themes on each nails. My favorite nails are my thumb with the gems and my ring finger with the tape mani.

April 30 day nail art challenge Day 24 : Tape mani

So I am a day behind and posting this kinda late. I got my idea from the cell phone game free flow. It is uber addicting game. The point of the game is to connect one color dot to another without crossing lines(colors) and filling in all the black squares.

———————————–Tape Mani—————————————————-

I have noticed alot of cool nail designs done with just plain tape and wanted to try it myself. I wanted to shout out who I copied this from but I forget what site I was on. I’m sorry 😦

First I painted 3 different colors on my nail vertically.

Next I cut out strips of scotch tape and covered my nails diagonally and horizontally. I followed up with a coat of Sinful Colors Black on Black. While the nail polish was still wet I pulled off the tap and Bam! this is what happens.
