BFF Challenge - Striping Tape

Hello and welcome to week 2 of the BFF Challenge! This weeks themes were chosen by Pram from My Nail Polish Addiction, and they are challenging for sure!

The first of Pram's two choices is a striping tape mani. And I do NOT like my results lol!

So, it's not THAT bad, I'm just not keen on it. I used Color Club Revvvolution, so it IS holo, but of course I had no sunlight today! And the pink is OPI La-Pazatively Hot Matte. And there is the problem lol Matte + striping tape = BAD. It wasn't bad at all when I had Revvvolution on top, but the fingers with LPHM on top were a bad idea. It needed two coats, and that caused drying time problems.

I do like the way the colours pop against each other though, but just for future reference, no matte on top of striping tape!

Check out my other challengers!

Until Next Time!

  1. i am digging this one!
    love the combo!
    i thought at first this was gray-ish but when u said its revvvolution then i know its because of the holo effect.

  2. Even if you don't like it - it's a great idea! I really like the alternating fingers; very cool. It has a lot of movement for me, sort of like a maze in a video game or something

  3. I really like it, even if you don't! :) The holo and pink matte look great, even if they didn't work great! :)

  4. I think this looks fantastic! How can you not like this!

  5. I love the combination here. Maybe next time use a pink polish and matte topcoat? I am really digging the matte with striping tape idea!
