Scotch tape and dotting

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Hey there lacquer lovers.

Tonight I have a new mani for you. I wasn't going to do my nails today because I had a killer headache. Then a Tylenol miracle happened and the headache was gone. What was the first thing I wanted to do? You got it.. Paint my nails.

I started out with a base coat of Seche Vite and then applied two layers of OPI's "Manicurist of Seville." I am in awe of this color. It's a deep, rich color of red (almost a burgundy) with wonderful coverage and super shine.

Then I used scotch tape and applied Sinful Colors "Black on Black." See my post here about using scotch tape to create a unique manicure.

Then to top off the the diagonal and add a little extra "zing" I used a dotting tool and added accent dots of OPI's "Pros & Bronze." If you don't have a dotting tool that's okay. See my post here about making your own.

I love the look. How do you accent your nails?

Happy Polishing!
