The Digit-al Dozen does Tape Manicures: Day Four

I am in love with the manicure. I just didn't want to take it off.  The inspiration for this manicure is the amazingly talented Missy from Gnarly Gnails who cuts nail wraps in to use as abstract stickers (or tape) for her nails.

The base of this manicure was Barry M Key Lime from the new summer Gelly line. You might remember my top ten Barry M posts a month or so back. This polish wasn't out then but if it was it would have shot right to the top of my list. It is the perfect lime colour and application was flawless in two smooth coats.

I then found of cheap zebra print nail wrap/stickers from Claire's Accessories which I picked up a couple of years ago and cut them down the middle and then applied them to my nail. I then used some gold striping tape to merge the polish with the wrap and give a crisper edge.

This is so funky and tropical and I think it is a perfect summer manicure! 

There are some other great tape manicure's below to whet your appetite too! Go check 'em all out!
