I still did a base coat and that dries in no time at all. Check it, I made patterns with the striping tape rather than just stripes WOOT WOOT. I actually didn't go crazy and wanted to give up while doing these. That always happens when I decide to work with tape. Mostly because I'm worried something is going to get messed up.
I figured out how to make tape manicures work for me. I literally work on one nail at a time. Not moving on to the next nail until the previous one has top coat on and is dry. It's not very time efficient but it gives me a piece of mind.
The studs weren't actually a part of the original plan. I didn't add them on until after I uploaded pictures of my nails on my laptop. Looking at in photographs I felt like it was missing something.
Does that ever happen to you? You finish your nails, love it and then after looking at it on a computer screen feel the need to add more Are you a tape manicure girl? Striping tape or Scotch tape.
