MANICure Monday | August Julep “It Girl” Tape Mani

Good Monday all my nail polish addicts.  I got my last Julep box a few months ago and just couldn’t figure out how in the world I wanted to incorporate the colors into a mani.  After showing them on Instagram my nail polish buddy Jen of Nail Chronicles suggested I do a tape mani.  And off I went in search of my rolls of foil tape!

After trying a few different configurations with the tape, I finally figured out 2 designs I wanted to do.  The tricky part with the tape is remembering the order you put them on so you don’t screw up and take the wrong one off first.  So I decided I better just stick with a simple pattern so I won’t end up having to redo them several times. My August Julep box came with 3 colors but I decided to use the raspberry color “Nellie” and the deep, dark charcoal brown “Fiore”.

I found so many cool ideas on Google when searching for tape manis, but until I perfect my crafts I’m going to keep them nice and simple…for now!  I love how these 2 colors look together and can’t wait to use them for more nail art in the future.

    I need to get some of that tape. There are so many manis I’ve seen that I want to try that have perfect stripes or lines :) Very cute – love the color combo.
