Digit-al Dozen DOES it All Again; Tape Mani, Day 11

This is a mani completed for Digit-al Dozen does tape mani's back in July 2013.  Unfortunately, life was busy at the time; I only posted a couple of tape mani's for that month's challenge and never got around to posting this am using it now!

Started with a base of two coats of Morgan Taylor Super Ultra Violet, topped with SV.  I don't believe Morgan Taylor polishes have made their way to Canada yet....I haven't seen any in my GTA travels anyway. I was able to pick up a few during my recent trip to Las Vegas at the end of June when I met up with a bunch of other polish fanatics (which I still haven't posted about the meanwhile, you can see Frazzle and Aniploish related posts here and here.)  When we seen the Morgan Taylor polishes at a supply place, they weren't a brand that was familiar to any of us (IIRC); however, I have since seen a few blog posts about Morgan Taylor polishes and hopefully they will make their way here eventually....or maybe I'll just have to pick up more at the next polish meet up in Vegas!

Placed V shaped nail guides on nails.

Topped with Pahlish ....Stays in Vegas.  This is a custom polish by Shannon from Pahlish, who was good enough to create it for me, which in turn was gifted to the ladies I met up with in Vegas along with WingDust What Happens In Vegas....

I layered it on thickly as can be seen; I really wanted an obvious glitter versus creme line.  These pix really don't do the glitter justice.

Just a little

Slightly different lighting; the glitter can be seen a little better but the base is brighter than IRL.

Topped with SV to finish.

Different lighting to see glitter better.

This is a pix of my right hand; topped with a thin layer of Pahlish....Stays in Vegas on it.  I actually think the glitter would have been more obvious in the tape mani if a light layer was used versus a thicker one, as the V got kinda lost in the mani as the polish was so thick.  Next time, I'll try it with a lighter hand.

Here's the other ladies Day 11 Tape mani's.
