Hi Girls, this is my first attempt to tape mani and I am really unsure if it is good. I love the finished look but I suck at tape manis. I have tried them a couple of times in past but they were Urrrghh!! I fail at it and they make feel very low, so I stopped attempting them at all.
But something happened and I was left with no option. I participated in #HePicksMyPolish on facebook. I had been hearing about this a lot and had been wanting to do it. Finally, I will be joining this time. Knowing that I picked up Color Show Glitter Manis last week and I would be crying to use it, he got partial I think. He picked up three of Maybelline Glitter Mania which are Stromy Night, Red Carpet and Matinee Mauve.
Since these polishes are textured kinds, I thought why not a Tape Mani?? But trust me , I was feeling through out the process, that something or other is gonna happen and this will fail again. Well, it’s not out of the world but I am okay with a first attempt. Atleast it is in a condition to share with you, unlike the others which had no one to look at them because I never published them :P.
I did a mistake though in completing the challenge, I forgot that we needed to choose only 3 polish and I used a fourth one. I thought it will just be an underlying polish but I forgot it will be visible after pulling off tapes. You see its my first time with both the challenge and the tape mani 😛 :P.
But I promise to be careful next time. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I planning on joining it every month :). My husband also helped me in the nail art, by cutting tapes and pulling off.
It was fun and I look forward to more of these. You may also expect some more tape manis in future because finally , I feel I have improved on it :).
Do you also have technique of nail art that still gives you shivers and is your weakness? Would love to hear what is it?
