33 Days Challenge - Day 3: tape mani

I like this challenge's pace. I can breath every other day and plan my next entry. Much easier then last year's 30 Days challenge where I had to create an entry daily. Although I might do that one again later. Anyway, today's entry in the 33DC is Tape mani, which also turned to be one of my favorite techniques, so do be warned - you will see lot's of tape manis in this challenge. But today's is a very simple one.
Mentality Vicious Soflajo Shark Bite Elevation Polish Too F#%*ing Hot
So I started this mani with two easy coats of Mentality Polish - Vicious, a red, slight shimmery matte polish. Perfect formula, wonderful pigmentation, definitely a must to any stash!

I then placed some tape diagonally on my nail tips and I applied SoFlaJo - Shark Bite, a sparkly rose red polish that I thought was peaking nicely with Vicious, and on top of that I used some more tape and I applied some Elevation Polish - Too F#%*ing Hot, a shimmery red jelly, part of Elevation Polish and CrowsToes collaborated Duo. Because I didn't want to ruin the matte finish of Vicious, I didn't top coat this design and left it to have three different finishes in one tape mani.

I love to see tape manicures and I've made two-three of them, but I have the feeling that I'm much quicker in drawing free-hand, also when it comes to straight lines... Well, I guess this is one of the things that I should practice more (just like water marble...) :-)
I love all Mentality matte nail polishes, they are gorgeous, it's a pitty that shipping costs so much... :-(

This is gorgeous! Your color choices is perfection and the different finishes look amazing together! I'm going to have to look through my collection to see if I can find dupes for these to try this look...
