The Digit-al Dozen DOES It All Again: Tape!

Good morning, readers! It's almost the end of the September Spectacular with The Digit-al Dozen. Tomorrow is the last theme day and our major giveaway ends in 2 days!! Go enter if you haven't already! It's an awesome prize of a $200 gift certificate to the etailer of your choice!

Onto today's challenge theme: Tape! I have decided that I love manis that use striping tape and textured polishes together, so that's what I did. I haven't done a color block mani with tape yet and thought it would be cool using some of my new fall Zoya Pixie Dusts!

  • I did 2 coats of Zoya Loredana and then a coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top to help with the drying process.
  • Once dry, I placed the striping tape pieces where I wanted them to go.
  • I then took Kiko Sugar Mat 644 and Zoya fall Pixies Carter, Arabella, and Chita and sponged them on with tiny pieces of torn makeup sponge into the rectangle openings.
  • Finally, I peeled back the striping tape and had this fun color block!

What do you think? I like the clean lines of a color block using striping tape so I think I'll call it a success! Thanks for reading! Come back tomorrow for the FINAL nail art theme day!

Pin It!


  1. Wow this looks amazing! I love your use of geometry and texture. And these colors look great together!

  2. Oh my gosh, this is awesome!! Love the texture and shapes! Great work!

  3. Love this design! I am gonna have to copy!

  4. That's awesome! I'm impressed you were able to get such clean lines with the texture... I know doing this with glitter is difficult. I like that we can do neat tape manis with these PixieDusts!

  5. This looks so cool! I need Carter in my life!

  6. Ooh, so crisp! This reminds me of fuzzy sweaters, and I love fuzzy sweaters ^.^

  7. These colours seem to go so well together....fantastic tape mani!
