Untried Polish Challenge: Glitter AND The Digit-al Dozen Does Tape Manis

Day 2 of The Digit-al Dozen Does Tape Manis and also Glitter Day for the Untried Polish Challenge! So um yep. Today's tape mani isn't so much of a win. But! I did use two amazing untried polishes!

So, yeah, I think I found my perfect mannequin hand polish! Essence Cafe Ole. Isn't it purdy! It's got a shimmer too! And since it is an Essence polish the formula is perfect! I love it! I used HK Girl Top Coat to help with the taping.

I then used Roca Tacoma from Sonoma Nail Art's Tacoma Nail Art collection. And it is amazing! Usually I'm not a huge gold fan but this is stunning! The pinks in it really tones down the gold. Gorgeous!

And since my tape cross thingy didn't really work I had this huge empty spot. Well, I didn't participate in Bling Week for The Digit-al Dozen so I thought I would use an item I had planned on using then! This rhinestone is from my scrapbooking supplies. And it is a lot smaller when not on the nail! :) Though it was intentional, I kind of like how it ended up! :)

Don't forget to check out the other ladies and their amazing tape manis!


  1. I actually kinda like this combination. Maybe a wee bit messy looking, but I see some serious potential.

  2. both of these polishes - SWOON!!! love the combination!

    1. Thank you! I believe they are the saving grace of this mani! :)

  3. I love this combination too! Tape manis don't have to be perfect to be fab. :)

  4. I love the combo with that glitter on top, it's so different, not sure if I've ever seen one like this :)
