Striping Tape Mani

Sorry for such a long time since my last post.

This is my first time trying the Striping Tape mani... I don't know why I have waited so long to so this. There are so many different designs that you can do with this.

Here is what I started with...

Then I used my striping tape that I purchased off of ebay. I got 10 rolls for like $2.00 shipped from China!

To create this!
With Flash

Without Flash

All the following were taken with flash from my phone:

Pin strips!


Star burst!

Diagonal lines!


(All of these photos were taken with my phone camera with and without flash.)

I think my two favorites out of the five that I did were the Pin strip and the Quilted. 

All and all I think I will be doing this again. It was sooooooo easy and fun too! So many different designs to be made. 

I only ended up doing one hand. I am right handed and things don't always look the same when I use my left hand lol. I am practicing and getting better but I'm not quite there yet... sooooo I'll be sporting my original one hand (my right) and striping mani on the other (my left) for a few days lol. 

What are your favorite striping mani methods?

Thanks for reading! 


  1. Pretty! Can you tell us who the seller was on eBay? I've wanted to try striping tape but I hear horror stories of people who buy tape that won't stick and just make a mess of their nails.

    1. that is the link to the person that I bought the striping tape from :)

  2. These turned out so well! Love the designs!

  3. I've nominated for the Versatile Blog Award!
