Blue, yellow & silver gradient

This simple striping tape mani was done in May of 2013. I am not sure what influenced the design as it was my first experiment with striping tape (specifically the kind made for nails) ever. I was skeptical about using it at all, as any past adventures in scotch tape or those horrible 'french manicure strips' ended up in nail art disaster like when the thick sticky residue on the backs of the french strips stick to your nails and then your base coat is RUINED. That's basically the worst thing ever.

It is fitting, then, that actual striping tape meant for nails has saved the day because it ACTUALLY WOKS, and that this design reminds me of the Avengers logo, except replace the red with neon yellow and BAM it's like superhero nails.

Polishes used:
- China glaze 'Yellow polka dot bikini'
- Gosh 'Silver'
- Sally hansen 'Blue my mind'

I think this is the first time I don't actually have to write the (actual colour) beside the name of the polish because it just so happens that the name of all three polishes include the actual colour. As you know, this basically never happens - that would just be too easy for us nail polish freaks.
