The Digit-al Dozen Does Monochromatic Week: Purples


Day two of Monochromatic week brings us purples! And since it is Technique Tuesday I thought I would try a new technique: Nailside's Tutorial: Explosion Design Tape Mani.

Can I just say, she makes this look so easy placing those darn triangle cut tape pieces on the nail. Pfft! Don't know if my are explosions but they are still pretty neat! :)


I used OPI Funky Dunkey as my base, China Glaze Urban-Night (dark one), and OPI Planks A Lot. Topped off with NYC In A New York Minute top coat. 

I'm definitely going to have to try this technique again......much later, kinda was a little frustrating! Hahaha! :)

  2. Yeah they make those triangles look SOOO easy. The *only* time I tried to do one, I was like, "Why am I so awkward? Baby giraffes could do this better!" Rest assured, yours looks waaaay neater than mine did. Also, yay for purples!

  4. Well well well, look at someone getting super fancy with the tape lately!! I love these - the little imperfections make it seem much more like a legit explosion :D
