Pre-Spring Challenge Day 7 – Pastel

So this weekend I added a photo to my gravatar. As much as I love taking photos of my hands, I’m not a big fan of my face, so this is a big step for me !

Today’s theme is a pastel tape mani. I used this as an excuse to try out an idea I’ve been thinking of for a while, it’s a fishtail, but with tape to create a small gap between the colours. I think the lilac is a bit too pale, but this turned out pretty well 🙂



The base is Color ClubSilver Lining. The pastel colours I used are all EssieNice is Nice (38), Lapiz of Luxury (94) and Need a Vacation (19)

    I think this looks a lot prettier (cleaner) than most fish-tails I’ve seen. I’m going to have to try it!

  3. Shucks, thanks!
    I can see this coming off great in flashy colours, too 🙂

  4. […] Last time I did a fishtail, I taped it all over the place to get some space between the braids. Well, that came out great, but I’m having to move along a bit faster with this challenge […]
