A scotch tape mani

Inspired by Chloe's Nails I decided to give scotch tape manis a try. I used to do french tips back in the day with mixed results but hers always come out so good I gave it another go!

I used 2 coats of OPI Simmer and Shimmer and then applied the scotch tape strips and painted over using Sally Hansen Insta-dri in Night Flight (which is not black but dark dark blue...which reminds me how much I wish there was a black insta-dri). It didn't really come out *bad* but not good either. I think if I try this again (and I might) I will make the strips thinner.
