Today I have a review of some French Tip Guides kindly sent to me from Born Pretty.
Deborah Lippmann Modern Love, Rimmel Space Dust Aurora and Tip Guides from Born Pretty Store
For this I used Deborah Lippmann Modern Love, Rimmel Space Dust Aurora and of course the Tip Guides!
These guides are really good quality, just sticky enough to adhere nicely to the nail with out being so sticky they take off the polish underneath. I decided to really test them by using the guides over the textured glitter polish… Amazingly there was no polish bleeding under the tape!

I decided on some neutral colors as I’ve been using so many dark and metallic polishes lately I really needed a change!

Today I have a sparkly mani I created using striping tape to show you.
Striping Tape Nail Art
for this I used
- Rimmel Space Dust – Aurora
- Filthy Gorgeous – Twilight
- Striping Tape
- Seche Vite
I began with two coats of Aurora, this is a really pretty polish! It is a slightly textured nude with loads of silver glitter, I added a thick coat of Seche Vite to even out the the texture to help stop the black polish from bleeding under the tape.
I used seven strips of tape for each nail, apart from my pinky which only needed six. Starting with my thumb nail I applied the tape, then carefully dabbed on the black polish, then using tweezers removed the tape while the polish was still wet. Then I applied another coat of Seche Vite over the top and continued with my other nails.
Rimmel Aurora and Filthy Gorgeous Twilight
I never realized how much easier a decent quality striping tape is to use! There was no curling up, sticking to itself or refusing to stick to my nail! 😀
