Well this was slightly less successful then my last attempt at using striping tape sadly. I went wrong on a couple of points.
Color Club On the Rocks and Barry M Satsuma
I wanted to use polishes that were more contrasting then I’d used previously and how much more opposite can you get between a silver and an orangey/red (still undecided on this one, although its going into the orange helmer drawer!). Although the colours kinda worked, I did completely pick the wrong polishes.
I used Mr M’s gelly as my base which is where I went wrong first. Despite the fact that it applied lovely and only needed 2 coats, it takes forever to dry without a quick dry top coat. I waited an hour before applying my tape and I still managed to peel some of the polish off when I removed it! Didn’t have that problem with the Color Club I used recently.
Also I needed to have chosen a more opqaue silver as I needed two coats of this and thick ones at that and that just made the striping tape difficult to remove.
So all in all, I improved in some ways, but not in others. Not my greatest attempt at tape. Now lets have a look at the ladies who managed it MUCH better than me!!!
