This was inspired by Didolines Nails post.
It is the first time I have ever used the special striping tape they sell for nails. I started with 2 coats of Rimmel 615 Night before, I'd describe it as a dark purple with a magenta shimmer.
I placed striping tape one nail at a time then did 2 quick coats of Butter matte top coat, then removed the tape. To be honest I should have probably just done one coat, I had some issues with the top coat peeling off with tape. All in all though it's a pretty good first try, still needs a lot of work though :). I have to admit I had to fight the urge to put a top coat to even it out, the texture drove me bonkers.
