12 Days of Christmas: Day Three Tape Manicure

     Day three! Today's challenge is a tape manicure. I used this as a chance to try out a half moon again. My inspiration came from icicles. I didn't want to get burned out on all the red and green, so I went with a blue holographic base: Color Club Blue Heaven.

     I used the same paper hole reinforcement stickers as I did in my first half moon post found here. I decided to not use a base color for this. I like the natural half moon in this. 

     To add to the icy feel, I used a simple silver glitter striper around the crescent of each nail. It made the lines cleaner without overpowering the holographic look the polish. To finish it off, I used a coat of Seche Vite. (That's a big surprise, isn't it?) What do you think of this look? 

Here are the other bloggers joining in:

     If you'd like to join, jump in! It's okay if you don't get to each day or post a day late. This is all in good fun. Let's see what you've got! :)



  1. Wow this is really pretty, and festive without being red and green. I really like it!

  2. Nice! Your holo photographed a lot better than mine did.

  3. This is gorgeous! I keep wanting to do a natural nail look, either a halfmoon or a patch or something. This looks great!
