Just a quick post today! Some simple red and black nails created with the help of some striping tape!
I started off with Come To Bed Red from Butter London, this is one from my untried pile! It’s a really lovely shade and was really easy to apply, but it unfortunately took four coats to be opaque so definitely not a polish to go for if you are in a hurry!
Then (when it was dry) I used striping tape to mark out the triangle shapes and filled them in with Barry M Black, I removed the tape while the polish was still wet so it didn’t remove the polish along with it.
For some reason I added some striping tape to my ring finger… It seemed like a good idea at the time, now I really don’t like it Unfortunately I realized after I had added the top coat!
This design really makes my nails look longer so I think I’ll try to ignore the offending bits of striping tape! 🙂
