Untried Challenge: Most Expensive

Hey everybody, it looks like I'm on time today with this post! So today I did another easy taping manicure, mostly because I am short on time and I didn't just want to do a swatch. I chose to use butter LONDON's Rosie Lee to create a sort of funky tip. I painted this rosie glitter over a holographic nail polish that I made (which I have a few extra bottles made for future sales) that is in the same general color family. I cut some blue painters tape with those fancy craft scissors. This gave the slight zigzag effect that I hope you can see in the photos (it was sunny for all of 20 minutes today, so I had to make do with what crap lighting I had). Here are a couple of pictures of the nail, with a bonus thumb of just the homemade polish:

I think this angle helps to capture the zigzag effect

Again, this is a really simple way to add some depth to a manicure when you're pressed for time, which I so often am nowadays. I apologize for the sad state of my cuticles. They're slowly healing after I put them through a week of hell. I really love this glitter and I am looking forward to using it again. I don't usually go for pink hues, but when I do I love this shade because it feels like a grown up way to wear pink. Thanks for reading and don't forget to check out these other blogs!
