Weekly Nail - The Dainty Squid

Weekly Nail

Sunday, April 29, 2012

Supplies used;
Revlon Top Speed in Emerald
Essie Blanc
Seche Vite
Scotch Tape

I used The Beauty Department's genius idea of painting scotch tape then cutting it out to the shape I want and applying the piece of tape to my nail. I'm really excited to play with this idea more, I have so many ideas I want to try out. I seriously can't believe I didn't think of the tape idea, it's so simple.


Happy Sunday!
xoxo

  4. I loved that tape-idea too, but I was afraid it might not come off easily. I'd love it if you'd let us know if it was a hassle(like glitter!) or easy to get rid of again;)

    P.S. Love the cacti background<3

    1. I found it to be much easier than glitter because the tape kind of just dissolves.

  8. I love using tape as a guide/stencil, but using it as a nail sticker is genius! This creates so many possibilities for designs. Thanks for sharing!

  11. Seriously cute photo with the inch worm. Also, I think this my be my favorite nail design you've done. I'm a simple kind of gal. I love these posts, but sadly I don't actually paint my nails very often. Like ever. Maybe someday, but I just can't get used to polishy nails.
