Purple OPI Striping Tape Nail Art

Hi guys! Today I have a funky striping tape manicure inspired by this tutorial I saw on Instagram. I decided to go with a purple color scheme because I thought it might look Valentine-y, but it doesn't really (but it's still cute!).

I started with a base of OPI You're Such A Budapest on my outer two fingers, and OPI Glints of Glinda on my two middle nails. Then, I taped off sections and painted with OPI Alpine Snow, OPI Miss You-Niverse, and OPI You're Such A Budapest. The polish had started to dry so I went in with a detail brush and fixed up the edges.

I love the way this came out, even though it was frustrating to create with the striping tape. I love having a sheer polish as a base for striping tape nail art, because it looks like the pattern is over my naked nail!

What do you think of this funky design?


  1. Pretty! It could work for an edgy Valentine's Day look... :)

  2. Looks great! Love the design you got from using tape too :)

  3. I love it! That purple is a lovely tone against your skin, and your taping looks immaculate

  4. These look gorgeous -- I love You're Such a Budapest and the sharp contrasting colors in the accent nails look amazing! Your nail shape is perfect :)

  5. This design is gorgeous! The colour combination looks great for this design too! I think it's something I'm definitely gonna have to try out! :)

  6. Woah, I love designs like these! The color combo is perfect, too :).
