a purple diagional mani

I will be adding silver glitter stripe polish across the line, but before my camera battery totally dies I snapped these photos. This is 3 thin coats of Sally Hansen Lacey Lilac, I applied thin graphic art tape diagonally across my nails, and then added 2 coats of Billie Cosmetic's Purple, which is a deep blurple shimmer polish.

When I removed the the tape and applied Top Coat, I found that thin graphic art tape to be too thin for me to use as a polish guide and so I got polish on the other side of the tape. I had to go over the polish mistakes with the Sally Hansen polish; you can still see some of them - oops!

I love that lilac, its such a nice shade of purple. Also I absolutely love the diagonal look on the nails, and I keep trying to recreate it on mine but I have round tip nails and I feel it just doesnt suit mine, looks amazing on yours though!

I do my diagonals with regular scotch tape, and it works great!! I love your color combo, btw.
