New31DC: Day 12 - Tape

Hello darlings!  It is day 12 of the New31DC, and today's theme is Tape.  I decided to emulate one of my favorite bloggers, and The Queen of Striping Tape, Whitney from Dressed Up Nails.  The mani that made me fall in love with her blog is this one which was my inspiration for these.

I used two of my untrieds for this design.  The base is two coats of Ciaté Headliner, and the glitter is one coat of China Glaze I'm Not Lion.  I even decided I had to buy those two glitters from the On Safari collection because of Whitney... I'm totally obsessed and probably should be the president of her fan club, hah!

Anyway, I did a few different patterns with the striping tape (ones that stood out to me from Whitney's original).  Striping tape is a bit difficult to work with sometimes, and I have tried it in the past with little success.  I guess today was just a good day.

I am very sad to take this mani off today to do the next day's challenge!!

Let's see what everyone else came up with for their tape manis, shall we?
