A Foray Into Striping Tape

Striping tape has long been a point of contention with me. While countless others have had success, I found nothing but frustration. However, when experimenting with an Independence Day manicure (whose picture I seem to have misplaced…) I learned that I had white striping tape. So, instead of using the tape to mask stripes, I decided to leave it on. Y’know… kinda how it was maybe meant to be used. Or something.

It worked brilliantly. And, thus, a new love was born. Add in my typical floral and a rhinestone for the hell of it, and I had one rockin’ mani. Striping tape, we are finally friends.

Bonus: If you look closely, my middle finger is a sausage in this picture. See how it looks bent? It’s not. It’s flat. This was taken a day or two after injuring my finger when a dog, whom I was not notified was dog-aggressive, bolted before I had securely grabbed his leash. The leash wrapped around my finger, and… well, I’m probably lucky it didn’t break or worse. Yay sausage finger!
