Nail style #5: Purple and purple triangles.

My take.

Sally Hansen Purple Posy and Covergirl Outlast Vio-Last

Starting with a base color of yesterday‘s Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant in Vio-Last, I used scotch tape to create the triangles. The triangle color is Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure in Purple Posy.

I’ve tried tape manis before, and my challenge is usually that I lack the patience to let the base color completely dry before using the tape. So it really helped to paint the base color a full day before trying the design.

So, do that.

Then a layer of quick-drying top coat and voilà!

The result.
