Multi-Colored Tape Mani

Hi everyone! Today I have a fun take on the tape mani. I've been seeing a lot of this style and have been dying to try it. In order to get the multicolored look you can use 2 or 3 shades and paint each nail with all of the colors. You can keep each nail the same or make each one different like I did. The colors don't need to be perfect since you're covering up most of it anyways! I used KleanColor Metallic Aqua, Green and Sapphire. On some of my nails it looks like I used four colors because Metallic Aqua blended with Metallic Green to create a teal shade on some of my nails. After waiting for my nails to really really dry- and after feeling self conscious in public with heinous nails, I applied my small strips of tape. Once they were good and secure I used Essie Licorice on top. When that was realtively dry I peeled off the tape, applied top coat and voila!






Enjoy!
