WNAC Ornaments & Striping Tape Nail Art


A little late but I have the first prompt in this month's WNAC Happy Holo-days theme which is ornaments! 

I wasn't sure if I would have the time to pull off this mani but I'm so glad I went for it. I knew I wanted a light base, these cute little ornament stickers, and some striping tape, but I didn't really know what I was going to do. As I lay down the striping tape, I realized that I had picked a purple that went perfectly with my purple ornaments so then I knew I had to continue that theme for each nail and the design just came together. 😊

For those who have followed me for a long time, you know I'm all about that sort of minimalist nail art so I think this was a bit busy but super festive and fun!

Here is what I used:

Essie* - Of Quartz
Stickers/striping tape - Amazon*

For this design, I didn't use any top coat as I wasn't keeping the mani on, but if I did, I would definitely use a fast drying top coat like Seche Vite* to keep the stickers and tape in place while giving a beautiful shine.

Also, 2 tips for the striping tape:
1. You don't have to go all the way to the edge of your nail/polish with it, leave a small gap before the end of your polish so that your top coat can encapsulate it and keep it from fraying
2. Using a cuticle nipper* to cut your tape will save you a lot of time/hassle as it can get super close to your nails and provide a crisp clean cut

Well that's all for today! Let me know what you think about the design in the comments below.
