Taped Water Marble Nails
Well hello again! It feels like I haven't been here for ages, but its been a weird week for me. I have been messing around with some new nail art, and practising my one stroke on paper. But for today nails I wanted to try a taped water marble. I loved the taped nail design I did as my last nail art of 2013, that I wanted to do another in a different way. I didn't want a pure white base polish, so opted to use Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Crinoline. I painted my nails with two coats yesterday as I needed the polish to be totally dry before using the tape.
I have used striping tape, masking tape and sellotape for other nail art designs, but as I was attempting a water marble I wasn't sure how well the sellotape or masking tape would work. So while out shopping I noticed in my local pound shop they had some white waterproof medical tape. Hopefully this will work!!
I'm also using Jesse's Girl polish for the water marble design.

Working on one nail at a time, I taped each finger like so. Sticking the triangle on the tip of my nails this time. Made a stripe design water marble, and here are my finished nails after clean up and topcoat.
As I always use my left hand for showing my manicures, and only sometimes show my right hand, I wanted to show you how this design looks with no top coat. So took a quick photo of my right hand, before I topcoated it.
I have been trying out some other striping tape designs, and may do that as my next manicure. Not too sure yet as I have a watercolour paint design I tried out and really like too!!
So for now, wishing you all a fab weekend and much love :)
