Artsy Wednesday - Tape Manicure

Hello lovelies! It is Artsy Wednesday today and the theme is Tape Manicure! I used sticky tape and striping tape (which I bought on ebay for very little). I was already wearing a gorgeous colour from the new CG - Cirque Du Soleil Collection called It's A Trap-Eze (check out my review here) and I really didn't want to take it off, or ruin the beauty by adding something very obvious, so today I went for a subtle christmas tree! I used this very good tutorial here by Nailside. For the green christmas tree I used another colour from the Cirque Du Soleil collection called Running In Circles (an amazing green glass fleck, stay tuned for a review!) and then for the top star, I fished out a red glitter from another new CG colour called Get Carried Away, all finished with a 1 coat of Wicked Fast. Hope you like this!

    The stripes look like tinsel around the tree. :)

  3. I like the multi-glitter as a background, it's like lights on the snow behind your tree. Very pretty!
