It’s Barry M Gelly Week on the blog this week to celebrate the very imminent arrival of the new Barry M Gellys to the High Street. They are due to launch next week on the 5th, but I know some ladies have had luck picking some up already.
Today’s post uses 3 of the 5 Gellys from the Collection – you can refresh yourself on them HERE – and is over a base of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls.
I’m a little bit obsessed with tape manis at the moment. I’m not the only one – Nailasaurus, Manicurator, work/play/polish – they are all tape mani experts, and it’s become a bit of a mission to get my tape manis GOOOOOOD.
I'm not perfect yet, but I'm determined to get there :) Being me, the pattern on each nail is different, but I used the same roll of tape throughout.
One of my tape mani issues is pooling, and on this mani, I had none of that – so what did I do? Well, as you may be able to tell, this is a splodgerama. So after painting my nails white and appling tape, I used tweezers and a small piece of make up sponge to very carefully colour my nails in.
Not only do I like the random splodge formula, but it made the tape mani much easier to execute. The polish applied is quite sparing, but you can build it up to achieve density – and then peel it off with no puddling issues whatsoever.
This is definitely how I’m going to try my next few tape manis :)
Which nail is your favourite? Enjoy xx :)
