Striping Tape Christmas Trees

Hi all! The other day Helen from The Nail Newbie posted a gorgeous tape tree mani using holo colors in our birthday group. I decided to try my hand at it.


I started with two coats of Jade Vermelho Surreal. It's a terrific holo, but a little too orange leaning for a Christmas mani.


Then I covered my nail with scotch and striping tape to make trees with tinsel using one of my all-time favorites: Nubar Reclaim. The pinky was supposed to be a tree with random tinsel hanging, but it's hard to tell it's a tree that small lol.


Then I added some glitter hexes I got from a pack at The Dollar Tree. They worked really well, but a couple of the blues bled a little. I still love how they look. So festive!!!


My right hand doesn't have even nails, so I don't show it very often. I made an exception because my trees looked super good and I was proud of them :) I dinged the thumb while working haha. Unfortunately I bumped another nail last night and got a nick :(
