Digit-al Dozen Does: Tape Manis - Grey and Yellow

This month the Digit-al Dozen is doing Tape-Manis!  I do like tape manis, they just can take awhile to complete!  Which is why I haven't done many of them, but I really want to step outside the box this week!

My first designed was actually inspired by my friend's wedding.  She got married this weekend and I wanted my nails to match my dress.  I wore a pretty grey maxi that had a striped gradient at the bottom.  My accent color, of course, had to be yellow! Funny thing is...grey and yellow were her wedding colors!

I started with two coats of NARS Shark Left.  I purchased the Shark duo when it first came out and this was the first time a used one of the polishes!  It was gorgeous and applied like butter!



After waiting for my top coat to dry, I taped off a diagonal, same as my dress, and added a coat of Lime Crime Crema De Limon. I really love the softness of these two yellows together!



After another top coat drying, I taped off another diagonal and added a coat of Barry M Grey.



I think the hint of grey really made this mani pop and tied it all together with my outfit.




The nice thing about this mani is that it is really easy to create.  Just cut small pieces of Scotch tape ahead of time, make sure your top coat is dry each time and you get the perfect mani!

  9. I've only got one NARS polish but I absolutely adore it. If they weren't so expensive I'd definitely be buying more. Would love to see the dress next to your mani.

  12. Argggh I was so against getting Crema de Limon...then I see this. I'll soon realize again that yellow looks gross on me and pass on it again so no worried. I really love this mani btw.
