Glitter Striping Tape Manicure With Video Tutorial

I started today's Nail Art originally intending to redo a Blue Striping Nail Art Tutorial, as I didn't like the way that I filmed it (you can find the original blog post here.)  But I painted my nails with Too Cool To Tango then remembered that the base colour for the Blue Striping Tape Manicure was Go Into The Light - whoops!!  Couldn't let a fresh base colour go to waste so I came up with this nail art & filmed a video tutorial for you guys, too! :-)

Polishes Used:
Rimmel - Too Cool To Tango (Pictured)
nails inc - Hammersmith
Seche Vite

I started off by painting all of my nails with Too Cool To Tango and added a thin coat of Seche Vite to speed up the drying process for me to apply my striping tape to.  

I then added 4 pieces of striping tape to each nail, from the middle bottom outwards and covered my nail with a coat of Hammersmith.  Immediately I pulled the striping tape off my nail with tweezers - before the polish dried.

At the bottom of my nail - where the striping tape lines met - I added a dot of Seche Vite, to act as glue for the silver studs & I added one to each nail.  I did not add a coat of Seche Vite to the finished manicure, because Hammersmith is a 3D Glitter polish and I did not want to ruin that effect.
