here and here) the nail art fanatic in me was extremely intruiged so off to ebay I went and when I found 12 rolls of the stuff for 99p with free delivery from the UK I bought it without a second thought (from this seller if you were interested)!
The tape came yesterday along with a delivery of another new Essie polish (an obsession is quickly forming) in Buy Me a Cameo. I tried them both out straight away!
I let the polish dry for a good 20 minutes before using the tape as I didn't want any smudging. I chose this pinky coloured tape as it went nicely with the polish and I didn't want it to stand out too much on my first go in case I did an extremely bad job.
I applied the strips horizontally on my ring finger nail and I think the result was good, it was surprisingly easy to apply and trim to size and as it is already sticky there's no need for messy glues or dipping in clear polish. I painted over all of my nails including the striped one with a top coat and after sleeping and showering there has been no peeling at all.
The only thing I was dissapointed with was the pink colour fading slightly with the top coat. Despite that, I'm exctied to try the other colours of the tape will brighter polish.
Have you ever tried striping tape? What do you think of the effects?
