Neon/Striping Tape fun!

A few nights ago I decided to paint my nails a fun neon color. This was still when the weather was perfect and I was soaking up the sun. On Tuesday, the weather decided to turn to shit here in FL and I haven't had any good beach days since :( Maybe posting my fun neon nails will make the sun come back tomorrow!!

I started with two coats of Spoiled I'm so Jaded, as my base. This beautiful polish is neon lime green with gold/yellow shimmer.
I decided to buy this polish back when Steph, from Imperfectly Painted, featured it on her blog in this post. I don't normally wear greens, but this I am in love with.
A gorgeous beach day to show off my neon nails <3 (I want this weather back now!!)
Then I spruced up this mani by doing some cool stripes on my thumb and ring finger using my new striping tape (which I'll talk about below) and China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy!

I just placed the tape in the design that I wanted and painted one thick coat of Flip Flop Fantasy over it and peeled the tape off while the polish was still wet! I loved the effect.
Here is the striping tape that I am talking's very thin tape that comes in pretty colors. I've seen some awesome manis where girls leave the tape on for stripes, as well as using it to create crisp lines, like I did.
I bought a pack of 10 of these on ebay for $0.99 with no shipping charges!! The pack came with silver, gold, white, blue, red, purple, etc!

I'm really excited to create tons of cool nail designs with this stuff! Stay tuned :)


  1. I'm So Jaded is very pretty! I'm thinking about wearing it soon. It looks awesome with the tape design!

  2. This is absolutely gorgeous! I love that you added the striping effect! :D
