I highly doubt you will ever see today's mani on me ever again -- it took WAY too long to do. I'm a busy girl! Luckily, I was able to watch physics videos on optics while I was hard at work! (Well, I guess that doesn't make me so lucky, but...)
Once again, I got this look from Sammy, better known as The Nailasaurus. You can see her awesome version of the manicure here.
I started with two coats of Did I Dye It Too Blonde? from spoiled by wet n' wild on all except my ring fingers. For my ring fingers, I used one coat of Essie's Too Too Hot, which is an AWESOME melon-y red that applies like a dream!
I put a thin layer of NYC In a New York Minute top coat on each nail to quicken the drying time and most importantly to protect the base colors from peeling off my nail with the striping tape.
I placed striping tape that I bought for almost nothing on amazon in a zig zag pattern on each nail, and once I made sure my placement was to my liking, painted over my taped nails. For my ring fingers, I used a coat of Megalast I Need a Refresh-Mint by wet n' wild, and for the rest of my nails I used a semi-thick coat of 465 Starstruck by 10 Professional Nail Laquer (I have had this polish for a long time, and I have no idea where I got it!)
Finally, I topped it off with a coat of NYC In a New York Minute topcoat. It dries super-fast and leaves nails extra shiny!
A little side note: once my mani was dry, I looked in my mailbox and saw that my package of JESSICA Nail Lacquer Gold Leaf 18k Top Coat arrived! I can't wait to try it in a few days! (especially because it won't take like 2 hours to finish) :-)
Until next time!
