Digit-al Dozen; Tape Mani's, Day 4

Another tape mani for the Digit-al Dozen challenge.  

Started with a base of two coats of China Glaze I'm not Lion; topped with SV.

I took a few pix of how the mani was done.  Sectioned off half the nail with tape.  There's so many fingerprints on the tape as I read that if the tape isn't super sticky when you place it on the base, then it's less likely to pull the base off when pulling the tape off.  As I only waited about 15 minutes for the base to dry before taping off, I didn't want this to happen!

After picking an image, stamped as normal over the nail. I used HD-B and black Konad special polish.

Immediately remove the tape after stamping.

This is the finished look once all nails are done including cleanup. In retrospect, I should have used an image that was a little more clustered together in the stamped area to make the polished-only area pop!  

Decided to stamp the other half of the nail; used black Konad special polish with plate HB-49 for the cat on the middle nail and Chez Animaux 01 for the paws on the rest.  Topped with SV to finish.

I'm still using Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter-A-Peel for easy glitter removal.....makes glitter removal a breeze!

Here's the other Digital Dozen Tape Mani's!

Hope you're having a great week; thanks for looking!


  1. cute!! I need to get a cat image! I love how the polish looks after it is popped off the nails.

  2. How I love all your manicures! Sorry that I don´t stop to comment, but I never miss one of your georgeous manicures :-)

  3. LOL! peel away! I love that base! I'm not a huge China Glaze fan but I feel I dropped the ball not getting that one!

  4. This is a gorgeous mani. I love how the polish is named I'm not Lion and then your have the cat silhouette and paw prints for a cat themed mani. Cute idea. That base polish is stunning. I always thought of a holo as a topper but look how pretty this is stamped over it!

  5. Pretty and brilliant! Love the stamping with tape idea!
