Nails of the Week #61: Metallic Finishes

So typical me. I see a beautiful manicure on Instagram and when I attempt to recreate it...just no. The problem was I was being lazy so instead of using two pieces of nail tape I just did one and believed that I would be able to freehand it. No. The lines ended up being WAY thicker than I wanted but it kind of words, it's abstract right? I also thought it would be fun to have two different metallic colors, again nope. What really would have been great is if I had nail stripers in the right colors, then I wouldn't have needed tape at all. Oh well, you live and you learn.

The purple base is Julep in Sylvia which is actually quite beautiful. It was also a really nice formula to work with which is such a contrast to all the disasters I've had with Julep. I used Butter London in Bobby Dazzler for the silver of course and then Orly in Rage for the rose gold stripes. I mean it's not bad from afar, except for that left pinky finger, something crazy happened there and I'm quite sure what.
