My first Scotch Tape Mani! Zoya Marley + China Glaze IDK

One of the wonderful blogs I follow is Chloe's Nails. Her Konad-icures are beautiful, but what I really love are her scotch tape manicures. They are adorable! I especially love the patch work ones. I've been trying to get up the courage to try a scotch tape mani, so I finally did. I used Zoya Marley, and then I taped off diagonally and added China Glaze IDK from the Holo collection. (Thank you, eBay!!)

I love it... I think it turned out really neat!

Please mind the messy one... I realized I hadn't done my clean up yet. I was excited! I'm really pleased with how well the holo showed up in these pictures... when I used IDK on my toes awhile back I had a hard time capturing it! I NEED some more holo nail polish in my life... 

I painted my nails with Zoya Casey over the weekend, but unfortunately I don't have any pictures. Trust me, I will be using her again soon... such a beautiful, deep burgundy! I had a long weekend... I somehow pulled a muscle in my back, and I had to go to the doctor. I'm on 2 strong pain killers and 1200mg of very strong anti-inflammatories. They also gave me a shot. I didn't even get a sticker. :( I wish I knew what I did to my back.... this is irritating! 

Going to lay down now... have a good week! <3



  1. No sticker? I wish I still got animal crackers :(.

    I super envy you for that holo...You know my birthday is in May :D.

  2. Beautiful! So sorry about your back though, ouch. Hope you feel better soon. <3

    Megan, my birthday is in May, too. When is yours? Mine is the 10th.

  3. @Megan; No sticker, no sucker, and no treasure box. I was a big girl too. :( All i got was a needle in the butt. Lol

    I will keep your birthday in mind. <3~ Maybe if I can get my fingers on some Gosh......... ;)

    @Kari; Thanks! I hope it gets better soon too.... today is day 6! I'm over it!

    My birthday is before y'alls... 20 days! March 14th... 20 days away from 25. Yuck!

  4. Love your mani!!! Sorry you hurt your back and I hope you are all better very soon. Your b-day is only ten days before my daughter's. She reminds me every day! She will be 11 on March 24. She loves nail polish as much as I do. Take care!

  5. Oh - and my bday is in May too! 21st.

  6. P.S. Just put a link to your blog on my FB page. I hope you will get some new followers!!!

  7. Thanks Dana! And tell your daughter happy early birthday! ;)

  8. Thanks! I really wish I could snag a few others from the collection... DV8? I think that's the teal one. I've seen swatches from the Tronica collection, but it just doesn't compare! I got IDK and 2Nite off of Ebay for like, $12 a piece.... I keep searching! lol

  9. And uh, "Thanks" was supposed to be "I do too"... it didn't make it from my brain to my hands! Damn pain meds!
