NOTD: Liquid sand, Gold & red nail art

Hello my lovelies! How was your weekend? Hope you're still enjoying your Sunday evening! I have been practising a little my striping tape nail art techniques and wanted to shared with you a design I've made recently.

This was much simpler to achieve than it looks like, and it only takes the patience of doing one nail at the time. For this mani I used two coats of OPI What wizardry is this? (swatched here) over my usual basecoat and let it dry very well. Then usin some bits of striping tape I did different designs on each nail and applied Zoya Ziv, OPI Ali's big break, and some Mavala Sparkling bronze on my pinkie and ring finger nails. At the begining I wasn't thinking to do a real mani that I would actually post here, but  my wish was to practice different ways to place the striping tape and what I could achieve, and I quite liked the final result so I decided to show you here. 

What do you think about this mani? Is it too much striping?
Would love to know your thoughts!
