Twinsie Tuesday - Tape Manicure

Good morning, dear readers! :D

Today is Twinsie Tuesday, and this weeks theme is tape manicures.

This is the first tape manicure I have done in a looong time.  I think it is my second or third one, ever.  I used a base of Revlon Popular (re-named Starry Pink), put a layer of topcoat on, then I put tape in random patterns on my nails.  I then used a purple glitter franken that my sister made, took off the tape, then sealed it with topcoat again.  After that I painted around the shapes with black acrylic paint and added some dots.  It is a bit messy, but that is okay.  :)

I made some of the black lines thicker than others.  This was really fun to do! :D
