I randomly had my red roll of striping tape lying next to my lace design stamping plate from Born Pretty…and saw that one of the stamps looked like it would be PERFECT to have a line of striping tape down the middle…and so I just left the tape and the plate out on my polish desk. For a month. And now that I have a clear stamper I can finally make this awesome art!
I am not ashamed to admit I spent 20 minutes picking out a base polish. Gold? Holo? Pink? Red? WHAT ON EARTH! Before I remembered this polish I was sent to review years ago that I seldom use! Its a nude with pink shimmer and black and red glitters…and since I wanted red striping tape and black stamping it seemed perfect.
I added a thin coat of a semi-opaque nude once the glittery base was down, just to burry the glitters a tiny bit more…I wanted the red and black of the stamp and tape to stand out, and not be eaten by the glitters. I love how it turned out!
I actually put the striping tape down BEFORE I stamped, so I could line up the stamp in the center of my nail perfectly. IT WAS AWESOME. I almost want to do this design again with different colors. Ugh.
