So this is post 180 or so. I'm finding it harder and harder to come up with different ideas. Must read more of the tubes! Anyway, a while back on Reddit I saw an amazing taped mani with a sparkly glitter triangle. If you know the one I'm talking about, please let me know and I'll add a credit in. I've been looking for an excuse to use Nicole by OPI Rainbow in the S'Kylie so this seemed like the perfect opportunity.
First up, two coats of Gosh Black Passion, a dark charcoal grey with a little shimmer in there. I have a bunch of Gosh polishes as they keep being on sale but haven't gotten around to using them. I was pleasantly surprised. They applied well - two coats - and were fast drying. Before adding the tape, added a quick coat of Seche Vite to really get it to dry. Once completely dry (seriously, just wait five more minutes) I cut out tape triangles and added a coat of the glitter. What you see here is actually just one thick coat of glitter, the coverage is amazing. If you have sticky tape, just press it to your hand first and it should help stop it pulling up the base colour. Top coat and you're done.
The Verdict: I love how this came out. The coverage on Rainbow in the S'Kylie is so good, it's the perfect choice for the accent. Yay glittarrrrr!
