#ablecaw14 Week 8: Tape 'Em

I have the second Finnish(able) Nail Art Challenge manicure of week 8 to share with you guys today! The second theme for this week was Tape 'Em and I have to say that I struggled with this theme a bit. I don't even know why as I do like tape manicures, but somehow I just couldn't figure out what to do for this manicure. First I had an idea in my head about a pink tape manicure but I struggled with that also and in the end I ended up doing this manicure with four different green nail polishes and just taping my nails randomly... Eh, so much for that pink and some clear vision... Anyhow, here's what I came up with.

At first I painted three coats of KBShimmer Mint-al Vacation. Then I just taped my nail randomly with straight narrow nails vinyls. Then I sponged on three green polishes somewhat randomly to each nail, just to get different polishes in different places on each nail. The three greens I used for this were: Glam Polish Sunrise Over Sea, Cirque Thicker Than Water and El Corazón Magic Sparkle Sea Is.

I really love all these green polishes together, they all look so divine! As you might know, I'm not the biggest fan of green polishes (except mint), but I can't really resist green shimmers/glitters like these, I love them all and they do look really really gorgeous together too! I'm not totally sure how I feel about this manicure, since I think I should have thought through this manicure first before doing it and maybe I could have placed all those tapes a bit better... But oh well, all the gorgeous polishes really make up for that and I can't really dislike this manicure either since they all are so pretty.

How about you guys, do you like green polishes?


  1. Nämä on nätit! Värit kanssa tosi kivoja ja tarkasti valittuja, sopii yhteen tosi nätisti :) Ihan samanlainen teippailu oli mulla toinen vaihtoehto, onneks tehtiin erilaiset lopulta ;)

    1. Kiitos paljon! :) Hyvä ettei sentään ihan samiksia tehty. ;)

  2. Tosi ihanat! Mä rrrrrakastan vihreitä, turkooseja ja mintunvihreitä lakkoja! Niitä ei vaan voi olla liikaa, kai... :D Kauniisti yhteen sopivat sävyt ja kivat teippaukset!

    1. Kiitos! :) Vihreät on mulle ehkä astetta haastavampia, mutta kaikista mintuista ja turkooseista tykkään kyllä hirmuisesti. Eihän niitä suosikkivärejä voi koskaan olla liikaa! ;D

  3. This looks really gorgeous. I do like the colours :-)
