BFF Challenge: Striping Tape!

Today's BFF Challenge theme was chosen by Pram and it is striping tape! This is my first time doing a striping tape mani successfully - usually I'm too impatient and the tape doesn't stick very well. The base color is Glitter Gal White Gold Sparkle and the purple is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Loves Me Not (which was an RAOK from Kirsten, such a sweetie!)

I really enjoyed doing two nails that were more 'complicated' - the middle and ring fingers, and then doing some more simple patterns on my other two fingers. My favorite in terms of idea is my ring finger, but the best execution is my middle finger. I think it's too easy to see small mistakes when the pattern is very geometric, like on my ring finger, but it's also the first finger I did so *shrug*

And finally, I wanted to show you what's to weird about this polish - in the bottle it has this truly awesome duo flash of blue to purple to fuchsia to green-gold, but that somehow doesn't come through on the nails. This polish is super pretty on, tho, very dark and vampy with little embers that catch the light - it just never has the same color flash as the bottle!
