This manicure was hard work. It took some time to accomplish… and that was my goal.
I’m testing out Seche Vite UV topcoat… used alongside the companion mini/portable UV lamp. I wanted a manicure that was tedious, and one that I felt I would really enjoy viewing for the long haul. This fit the bill.
My aim is long-lasting shine, and chip free results. I’ll let you know how the topcoat holds up.
This has to be the most subtle tape manicure… BUT it was a total success…. again! Yay!!! *doing a little jig*
Time consuming? yes.
But I have come to a new appreciation of this tape process. The clean lines that can be achieved are just flickin’ amazing! Look:
China Glaze – “Papaya Punch” & “Sun Worshiper”
The “real life” color is probably somewhere between the first picture and the last picture. Sun Worshiper is near neon, and Papaya Punch is pretty deep and muted against it. The color change looks a light reflection as opposed to an actual color change. . .
