Patchwork Mani!

I have been wanting to try this ever since I first saw it on Chloe's Nails. I love her scotch tape manis! I'm planning to do another one of these for St. Patricks Day... I just have to decide which greens I'm using! I currently have Zoya Ivanka, Suvi, Shawn, and Midori. We'll see!

I got bored with the OPI DS Opulence  pretty quickly, so I added OPI DS Radiance and Zoya Raven. This is my right hand.... I messed up a bit on my left hand with the order of the patterns... Lesson learned!

I love the way this turned out! I'm so proud of myself! This would have been impossible without Seche Vite.... It would have taken HOURS!



  1. Did you do a coat of SV over every layer then to make it dry quicker?

    I haven't done one of these yet. Very cool!

  2. Love it! Very pretty :) I always forget to buy scotch tape... I want to try this too!

  3. @Megan; Yeah... Basecoat, SV. Tape, paint, remove tape, SV. Tape again somewhere else, paint, remove tape, SV. took about 30 minutes.

  4. I need more tape I want to try this one!

  5. Isn't tape a normal house item lol? I couldn't live without keeping scotch tape in the house.

    I wonder if painters tape like you'd use on the walls is good for patchwork manis...

  6. really love the colors you chose, and great job on the taping!

  7. just found a link to your blog on a site, and i'm glad i checked it out!
    love the look so much. i'm now going to have to buy some more tape.
