Hello Oooh Shinies readers! I'm very honored Bregje had asked me to do a guest post for her beautiful blog. Oooh Shinies was, and still is ;-), one of my favorite nail blogs long before I started my own, so it is strange, but so exciting to see my own nails on here! To celebrate this special occasion I made a festive mani featuring one of my favorite tape designs, the explosion.
For the red base color I used H&M Love Berry from the latest Disney collection. The color itself isn't really that special, but I fell for the incredibly cute bottle and name! Isn't it adorable? When Love Berry was entirely dry I put tape triangles on top to make the explosion shape, I applied my second color, then removed the strips right away and
At last I did something Bregje and I particularly have in common, which is mattifying our nail art :) Adding a matte finish can emphasize a graphic design like this or make a 'loud' design look calmer. I know not everybody likes a matte finish (yet), so hopefully we've won a few more souls again, haha.
Thank you so much Bregje for having me here! Your flawless stamping, great polish combinations and perfect clean-up are such a huge inspiration to me and all the rest of your readers, so keep up the good work!
I think this design isn't just one of your favorites, but a favorite of mani people, including me! I often don't have patience for taping, and I think it's pretty hard to get such crisp clean lines, but seeing a mani like this makes me want to give it a go again. And this combo reminds me a bit of Superman! Thanks for your lovely post, Jane :)
I don't think taped manis can get any better than Jane's, and on her blog she shows a lot more original and awesome stuff, including some tutorials!
