Funky Checkers

Another Monday means another PAA theme! This week we created tape manicures.

The weeks are just flying by, it feels like Wednesdays turn into Fridays and Saturdays turn into Mondays. Seriously, it's crazy how fast things are moving!

For this manicure I used Love Polish's Checkered with a Twist" tutorial to help me create this look.

The placement of the tape really confused me at first, but her tutorial is really great so it shouldn't be too hard to understand.


For this manicure I used Nicole by OPI Light a Candle and Zoya Marley. I did half my nail in each color, just like Love Polish's first step. Then I applied one coat of Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat to speed up the drying process. After about 30 minutes I applied the tape, like Love Polish shows, and painted over it using Zoya Jem to form my first set of checkers. Then I laid down my second piece of tape and painted over that using Rimmel London Black Satin. After I completed all the steps and fixed any mistakes I applied another coat of Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat.

Like I said, this was really hard for me at first but Love Polish's tutorial was very helpful and explained everything really well.

She has one of my favorite blogs and her tutorials are all amazing. I definitely recommend checking out her blog, especially if you love tape manicures.

I just came back from Sally's Beauty Supply about an hour ago. They still have a lot of Fingerpaints on clearance for $1.99 and also they have a coupon out where you can get a free Fingerpaints polish with any purchase.

Just thought I'd let you all know, have a great day!
