The tri-polish challenge day 8: Striping tape gradient

 
Hello everyone! How are you doing today? I'm bringing to you the 8th entry for this challenge and the last for April. That means the last using this three colours! I must admit I'm starting to get a little sick of them! I don't think I will use again these colours in a very, very long time, lol!

While running out of ideas (and time) I decided to check my list of nail art to do and decided I would give it a try to the striping tape gradient. Of course I had a wonderful tutorial to follow made by the lovely Anutka of Wacky Laki that made the whole process a lot easier! You can check it out here.


So, I started using my regular base coat and two coats of Clic#465 (neon pink). Then waited until the polish was completely dry (that was the harder part!) and added a few pieces of striping tape with no specific logic. (I used the Born Pretty Store tape you can check it here:12 color line nail art striping tape set) Then I sponged my gradient using the above mentioned pink and the H&M turquoise, Bella's choice. Finally I gently took off the tape and sealed the mani with a coat of Essence BTGN top sealer. That was pretty easy! I'm happy with the result considering it was my first time doing this nail art, so I guess it'll get better next time.


I'm so over these three colours by now! And what about you? I'm really concerned my readers might find it a little boring to see the same colours two weeks in a row. Are you? Is this challenge making any sense to you? well, as always feel free to leave your comments! My day is sweeter when I read your comments below. Also, don't miss the wonderful creations the other participants have made for today!
Love,
Nati
