Tape Mani with Ozotic 513

Hi all!

Sorry I haven't been able to blog as often, but its because I got a job! I am now working at another photo lab in the city, but this one is newer, higher quality, and the management is much nicer. Yay employment, means more money for polish. I need to feed this addiction some how. Also the other reason I haven't been blogging so much is that I keep liking the polishes I'm wearing so I haven't been changing them as often.

As the title suggests, I've been sporting a tape mani the last few days. Check it ooouuuttttt.

More photos after the jump!

I got the inspiration for this mani from the amazing Nailside. This girl has some of the most incredibe tapi mani's and freehand nail art around. If you don't know her blog, I suggest you go take a peek.

The polishes I used was 2 coats Illamasqua 'Poke', taped off my tip, 1 coat Ozotic 513, then taped off the tip again and used a 1 coat black creme. Slather in Seche Vite, Done! It's not to dificult, you just have to have patience so everything has a chance to dry.

I realised once I put the purple holo on that I should of used a different base colour, but at that point it was late on Sunday night and I had work the next day. I will definitely be trying more tape manis in the future, I just need to get better at matching colours/finishes so they stand out more.

What are some tape mani designs that you'd like to try out? Let me know in the comments.


  1. Omg... please come over to my house and do my nails! This looks freakin' amazing! It kind of reminds me of Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty. ;)
