The Lazy 15 Challenge - Tape Mani

First day of an exciting new challenge hosted by  Totally Nailed called "The Lazy 15" named as such because we're too lazy to do a whole 31 days!

This challenge is Tape Mani which is another first for me.  Had to have a few attempts and learnt along the way to pull the tape off while the top layer of polish is still wet, especially as some of the tape are holey.

Base coat is Nails Inc Shoreditch, 4 different tape varieties which I raided from my mum's craft box, topped with W7 black (which was an absolute pig to use), topped with some pink glitter. I'll deffo try a tape mani again, it's fun and you get a really good striking effect, oh and sorry for my poor index finger nubbin!  What a sorry state!  Onto the pics......

 This is the tape used on my middle finger

Here's the details of the Challenge if you'd like to join us


  1. This is so original! I've never seen this type of tape used before, I love it!
    Reminds me of princess nails :)

    1. Awwww thank you, luckily my mum has loads of tape which she uses for making home made cards so I'm really lucky, so easy to do and lots of fun!

  2. What a good idea! I'm going to have to have a root in my attic to dig out all my old craft stuff as I have loads of these! x

  3. Cute! I wouldn't have thought to use crafting tape! I love it - it looks like a tiara!

  4. Lovely! I've seen similar tapes being used as nail stickers ;)
