Artsy Wednesday: Tape manicure

Today for Artsy Wednesday the theme is tape manicure. I've done a lot in the past, but today I decided to try something a bit different, inspired by Casey of Drama Queen Nails - Rubik's cube nails!


I've been meaning to do them for a while, but seeing how good they looked on Casey's nails was what finally made me take the leap. I'm not entirely happy with the colours, but it took forever and by that point I stopped caring!

I am so in love with tape manicures - the crisp lines are great for pedantic people like me.

In other news, it's my first blogiversary today! I was planning a big celebration, but I think I'll save it for after I hand in my thesis early next year :)

  5. Omg I know what you mean by it being a paint! A year ago I did rubik's cube nails WITHOUT tape (before I even knew about that technique) and that took forever. Been wanting to re-do them now that I know about using tape...love the clean lines!
