I warned you there’d be tape manis! 😛
ulta3 Gold Rush Fever (gold shimmer)
Milani Gems (chunky rainbow glitter)
ulta3 Confetti (fine fuschia/gold/blue glitter, to try to give a more defined “edge” at the cuticle)
Orly Bonder (smoothes the glitter out so well!)
(tape wedges added)
ulta3 Orchid (cool purple with gold shimmer)
(tape wedges removed)
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri
Tasty glitter macro:
All the little pink things are from Confetti – there aren’t any little pink things in Gems as far as I can tell.
Tape manis – still sexy, or so last year?

My vote is… Still sexy! This looks really beautiful, but it sounds like it’ll be a nightmare to remove it! 😛
Thanks! And probably 🙁
wow, wicked, love it 😀
I love glitter! And tape manis! Totally not last year, I reckon! I always do mine, colour first, glitter second, but it looks really good the way you’ve done it. I’m amazed how smooth the purple goes on over the glitter.
I think that would be easier to remove… but I’m not sure how well it would work in this case – I needed a few coats of glitter, and I was worried that the tape would dissolve. Does the tape ever dissolve for you? :
It’s smooth because of the base coat layer on top of the glitter – it works surprisingly well!
wowzah! that is amazzzing!
Tape manis are still amazing. I love this one. It’s super festive.
Haha yeah! Milani Gems always looks festive! 😀
Loving this look! I’m wearing Ulta3 – Orchid at the moment, it’s so gorgeous!
Thanks! Orchid is lovely, like a bluer version of Waterlily!
That’s a gorgeous color-combo, love it 🙂
Thank you 🙂
Ooo. Love love love!
Thank you! 🙂
Great idea! I like it a lot
Thanks! 🙂 I don’t think it’s very original, but I’m a fan of the colours.
thissss is amazing!
Thank you! 😀
So cute, I love the glitters:)
Yeah, the main reason I did this was because I wanted to wear Gems but couldn’t see myself wearing a full manicure of it!
Ooo! This is perfect for Mardi Gras! I don’t think tape mani’s are out of date at all as long as people keep coming up with creative new designs and color combinations.
Haha yes, festival nails! 😀
Very pretty and sparkly! I vote still sexy forevermore! 🙂
Yay! 😀 I hope glitters will still stay cool for a while longer, I have so many bottles to get through!
Wooowww this is awesooome!!! I love all that sparkliness peeking through! Great idea for a tape mani!
Beeeauttiful! Love this look!
Thanks hun! 🙂
I love the colors that you used! This is such a fabulous mani.
Thanks! Can’t go wrong with purple and gold 🙂
So creative and well done, the purple and the glitter make a great combination.
Wow, this looks amazing!
