26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Mixed Tape Mani

Not such a great idea!!! I hate striping tape and when I saw this prompt I thought - oh no, no way I can cheat or avoid that - I will just have to face it. Feel the fear and do it anyway!

I applied the tape and vinyls in a random pattern and then painted with A England Polovetsian Dances, a gorgeous dark purple holo that I thought would give the best contrast against the green and orange.
It smudged a bit in places and although I took a lot of photos there was no getting away from the fact that this was not my best work! At least I tried...
