Nail of the Day: Tape Mani

A quick pick of a past Nail of the Day done for the Purple Crumpet Fairy Challenge. Unfortunately, due to my move, I haven't been able to participate as much as I would like to.  I used Zoya Dana over Finger Paints Glaze Lemon Sour. The bright yellow base changed the Zoya color somewhat but I like the brighter effect. 

A quick and dirty swatch of Lemon Sour.  Two coats over 1 coat of white. I love this color :)

Thanks for stopping by. Until next time, Happy Polishing!

    1. that happened to me the first time as well. i had to start over and make sure the base coat was very dry before removing the tape, then it worked, LOL.

  12. You called it China Glaze even though the brand for Lemon Sour is obviously Finger Paints. I think CG Lemon Fizz and SC Unicorn could be dupes of the FP.

  15. It is so lovely!!! I must admit I've never considered yellow as a polish shade I would use...but maybe with this mani you're making me change my mind! In particular, these two colours fits perfectly together!!
