Tape mani!!!

Hello guys........how are you all??? I have been planning on doing some tape mani and was not getting any inspiration. One day I was watching show on Star Plus 'Nach Baliye Shriman vs Shrimati' and saw gorgeous Shilpa Shetty wearing the following dress and was totally awed.

I thought of executing the design on my nails. Moreover, I had bought one teal color nail paint recently (its not of  a brand, I guess its some indie brand....) and was thinking of applying it but was not able to think of any design and then Shilpa's dress came to my rescue :)

After executing the design, this is the final result I got-

The colors which I have used are-
1. Red color- Maybelline colorama Graus
2. White color- Lakme Color Crush No. 08
3. Teal color- Camieo Speed Dry Nail Enamel

The steps of this easy mani are as follows-

Step1- Apply base coat onto your nails and after that color all your nails red and let them completely dry before the second step.

Step2- After the color completely dries up cut tapes (you can use any tape, cellophane tape). I did not have striping tape so I used a golden color tape and cut it in desired lengths and breadth and put it in on the nails as shown-

Step 3- Apply teal color nails paint over the nails in which you have put thicker tapes and white color over the nails which have thinner tapes. I have applied both the designs on the thumb.

Hope you liked the design and color combinations.
