It's Always Greener On The Other Side

After my failed attempts at trying to do my music manicure for the Mish Mash Challenge I decided to just do something that wouldn't fail me, a tape manicure. I actually wasn't sure what I was going to do after I painted my base but while I was watching Big Brother I saw that one of the players, Spencer, was wearing a sweater the same color of my nails and a shirt the color of one of my polishes. I decided to use them together and since only a triangle worth of his shirt was showing I thought of taking it literal and doing a tri-accent but I've already done that, I wanted something a bit different and this happened.

Green Yellow Avon Speed Dry- Inspire

I'm actually really bad at getting things to be the same size just by looking at it so to make sure that it was all even I used reinforcement labels and put them on my nails as if I was going to do a halfmoon manicure. Afterward, I cut a piece of tape and put it right above the highest part of the reinforcement sticker and viola!

My Inspiration:

I promise I'll get my music manicure up sometime soon and I hope that it will be the last time that I put up a post late. Since I haven't been so great about keeping up with the last two challenges I have been trying to swatch some of my polishes so that I can post them while I wait for the next theme of the challenge so please don't hate me!
