Hi Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend!

Today I have another attempt at some nail art.  I’ve wanted to do a nautical themed mani for some time now.  I’m not sure why but I’ve really wanted to.  A few weeks back I ordered some striping tape off of Amazon and it finally came in!  This was my first time using it; I think that I will use it again and I hope next time be a little more successful.

Nautical Nail Art:

What I used – Zoya Sooki (3 coats), Misa Heaven White (1 coat), Essie Midnight Cami (2 coats), striping tape and cuticle nippers to cut tape

Final Result:

So here it is.  It’s not the worst thing I have ever seen but I have some learnings for the next time.  I did not put the tape straight nor did I press the tape down all the way so the white lines on the nail do not go from end to end.  I also painted all my nails but I think in future I will finish the accent nail before I move on to the other fingers since I kept those pretty simple.

What do you think? Have you ever experiment with striping tape before?  Or other kinds of nail art?
