New nail polish and striping tape...

Well I couldn't wait to try out my new nail polish! (This is Glittering Garland by China Glaze) and my new striping tape...

So here is today's experiment...
My first time with striping tape, not very original I know...

China Glaze: Glittering Garland with a helping of Seche Vite top coat (the best around!)

Also I found that the tape started to peel a little at the ends... Despite my application of top coat (perhaps i'll try a little more next time?)

These photos are after a hard days wear at work - which involves a lot of typing (and tapping nails on the desk, much to the annoyance of my colleagues... Whoops)

Hope you like them too! :)

BTW used the new Seche Vite base coat, it's rather nice it creates a smooth almost matt finish which then (I assume) makes a nice gripping surface for the coat of nail polish... I tried it over my Sally Hansen nail Hardener and I didn't see too much difference to when I use it alone (it just made my manicure feel a bit thicker... Mind you the Seche Vite top coat does that anyway....)

Sorry about the bad layout, posting on my phone again, whoop whoop!


  1. I've only just started really experimenting with striping tape too but it's so cool! I like best when you pull it off and it leaves nice straight lines :)

  2. I always get too annoyed with striping tape, i'm too impatient to work with it I think!

    I nominated you for a Leibster award, you can check my post here; :D
