Diagonal crackle mani


Hi guys! For this post I have a diagonal tape mani to share with you. I just love those! They're so easy to make and a great way to combine polishes and different finishes. Today I didn't feel like spending too much time on my nails, so this was perfect. I applied one thicker coat of the navy creme China Glaze First Mate. Because it was just one coat it dried pretty quickly, so soon after I could place a tape strip on each nail. I knew I wanted a silver for the tips, but to add something special I picked a silver crackle polish: OPI Silver Shatter. It's so super shiny! Finally I added a fastdrying topcoat and my mani was done :) Thanks for reading ^^

  6. This looks great. I love the color combo.
    Did you find that the shatter corroded your tape?
    I tried a similar design with OPI Black Shatter a few weeks ago and my tape kept breaking when I peeled it off. :(
    It left little tape fragments that were so annoying to get off.
