Also, about the giveaway: for those of you that entered, I forgot to ask for your email addresses to notify whoever wins. So you'll all need to check this coming Saturday's post to see the winner, because you'll have 48 hours to respond or I'll pick someone else. So make sure you check my blog on Saturday, or if you want to, email me with your GFC name so that I have your address. I'll post this on every post until then so that hopefully everyone gets the heads up.

Finally, some of you who entered the franken contest didn't sign up for the giveaway, but I assume you'd all want to be entered anyway. If you don't, let me know. That is all.**

The return of the tape! My last exploit with tape didn't turn out so well but I thought I would try it again.

I started out with OPI Mermaid's Tears... whiiich I apparently accidentally deleted the pictures of. Gah!  Here are my original pics of it. Hey, those aren't too bad! Anyway, I started with that and then cut the tape into a bunch of teeny weeny little strips and placed them like so:


Then I used American Apparel Peacock for the stripes. Yes, it does kind of take forever. But the result is this:

*angels sing*

Although the tape produces rather harsh lines, and it doesn't look so hawt when you first finish.

*angels abruptly stop singing*

But! There is hope yet, young grasshoppers. The first (or maybe not the first, but it's up there) rule of nail polish is that glitter fixes everything. Seee?





I used LA Colors Treasure Chest. How much better is that!? It was a totally beesh to take off but it was sure as heck sparkly!

A mi también, muchacho. A mi también.


  1. That photo is terrifying. TERRIFYING. Warning please!

  2. Very nice color combo, it Looks so pretty after the glitter! Glitter is the best!

  3. I love AA Peacock! Such a pretty blue! These stripes came out really awesome! You really did a great job! And you're up to 187! How cool is that?!? And yes in this case, glitter did fix everything

  4. Oh man. I could listen to chicken on a raft for hours but I would NOT be able to sit there making those strips of tape. xD


  5. This looks so pretty, I like the colors you chose.

  6. Stripes=1/16 inch tape from TCP Global. No cutting, just rip n stick. It's car striping so not overly sticky. I happy striper now!

  7. The photo scares me.. hahaha :)

    Love them with the glitter! Glitter makes everything better.

  8. The addition of glitter was a super idea!

  9. @Larie: But that would ruin the surprise!

    @Fingers: LOL, someone must have unfollowed me because now I'm at 186! Ouch!

    @Naomi: Yeah, it's a little time consuming. I only do it once a blue moon!

    @denisefh: That's very nifty!

    @Vintage: I enjoy scaring people.
