Pink & Grey Make a Great Pair in this Striped Tape Mani!

Nothing to Disclose

Today's post is written by my birthday-club-turned-super-cool-blogging-friend Bee of Bee Polished! I really admire Bee because she does such classic and sophisticated nail art (almost the opposite of all of the things I throw on my nails!). Beyond her nail art talents, she's also a trained and super fab nail technician! I use her Rehab Your Nail posts as a reference ALL the time - super easy to follow and very helpful. Check out this fun tape mani!

I'm so excited to be doing a guest post for one of my favorite bloggers today! Some of you may know my blog Bee Polished! Emma and I have somewhat different styles and I LOVE the way she uses new techniques and crazy color combos which always work and look super cool! I'm more of a basic type nail art gal but I'm branching out. Today I tried out a tape mani which is something I really struggle with! They're supposed to make things easier but for some reason they just make my life miserable. There's the waiting for the base to dry. The messing with tiny tape strips. The placement. The polishing. The removing. The waiting for it to dry a bit to topcoat. GRRR....can't I just neatly draw on the lines?  That said there are a lot of cool things you can do with tape that you can't achieve without it so it's a skill I'm working to better! This mani was based on a pair of shoes I saw on Instagram! I hope you like them as much as I do!

Yayyy! Thanks Bee! Also, what, one of your favorite bloggers? Me?! D'aww I am blushing so hard! I ADORE these colors together - definitely not something I would have thought of on my own :) I've had a hankering for coral-y shades lately, regardless of the fall-ish weather!
