Updating a mani… Again and again

A few weeks ago, I bought a set of striping tape off eBay. Striping tape is a quick and easy way to embellish your nails, and I’ve seen people use it to wonderful effect. After a week of looking at my Gelish-ed nails, I was already getting bored even though the mani still looked fresh. So, I decided to use my silver striping tape to give it a new look. The result:

It is so shiny! However, it only looked good for a day before it started peeling off, even though I had sealed it with Gelish top coat. I had to touch up with new tape and to be safe, I sealed it with two coats of Gelish top coat.

Still, I was not satisfied. I decided to practice my acrylic art and added flowers to the mix.

I like it, but I still have that itch to do a Gelish change because I have a design that I’m dying to do on myself. 😦

Must. Hold. Out.
