Spring Striping Tape Nail Art

Looking at all my previous manicures, I'm surprised to say that this simple striping tape manicure for New Year's is actually my most popular, ever! So, I decided to recreate it with a spring color scheme in mind, since I haven't used striping tape in a while.

I started with a base of Chick Nail Polish Hipster Chick on all nails. This dusty green polish has a jelly-like finish and scattered holographic microglitters, and it just looks so cute for spring. Then, I taped off my middle two nails and painted OPI Don't Bossa Nova Me Around, which I got from HB Beauty Bar (don't forget to use the code POLISHCHALLENGE for 15% off your order!)

I took other photos of this manicure, but for some reason, they all came out looking really bright and the color was off, so you only get one photo for today! Oh well. I am loving this combo of green and nude and I think the scattered holo effect looks gorgeous! What do you think?


  1. I love both versions:) But this one's so spring-y:)

  2. I've been loving using striping tape too so this is lovely. That green really pops too :)

  3. Adorable mani! That green is amazingly beautiful!

  4. These colours look stunning together - perfect for this time of year! I really liked your new years design - it was so simple but stood out! :)

  5. never heard of that brand before, but i really love the color :) The striping tape pattern is super cute, i have to do one of these again :)

  6. This is an amazing color combo! And I absolutely love the green one..
