On My Nails Today: The Botched Scotch

For lack of anything better to do, I tried my my hand at easy scotch tape nails:  Apply a darker base color over the entire nail and allow it to dry.  Tape off the lower half of the nail at an angle, and then apply a lighter shade over the remaining half of the nail.  Allow it to dry, peel off tape, and finish with a glossy top coat.

That was the easy part.  The tough part?  Patience.  I messed up the polish because I couldn't wait long enough for it to dry, and that's the story behind the botched  polish on the second finger :P

  3. Aw--it still looks great though, Rads! And that's totally something I would do--I have NO patience when it comes to my nails. That's why I also don't do nail art of any kind--takes too long :P
