33DC Day 3: Tape Mani

Ah, tape mani, so we meet again. Grrrr! Today's prompt for The Crumpet's Nail Tart's 33DC is tape mani, my nemesis. But thankfully today's worked out well! If I do say so my self.

Shhhh! I reused a mani! This is my watercolor for the art prompt of The Digit-al Dozen Does It Again Art!

So my base is: two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. I then used OPI Fly, China Glaze Budding Romance, China Glaze Make Some Noise, and finally OPI Funky Dunkey. All topped with HK Girl Top Coat. Click the above link if you would like to see the watercolor before the tape mani!

Don't the colors match my blog wonderfully! :)

I then used stripping tape and OPI What Wizardry Is This? I love using textures in tape manis. Less dry time! Just look how the watercolor makes the camera wig out with the focus. The softness of the watercolor and the harsh lines of the tape mani are very interesting!

Don't forget to check out the others and their tape manis! And if you would like to join up, please visit: Crumpet's Nail Tarts on Facebook!


  1. Very interesting color combo! I don't know if I would have chosen the two to go together but it looks good!

  2. Your lines look great and the mani is cute. I have tried tape manis some but my lines don't come out precise and have jagged edges. I haven't figured out the secret yet, but it looks like you have slayed your dragon.

    1. Aw, thank you! I am only able to do simple designs, tape manis are hard!
