Initially, this manicure started life yesterday as an accent mani... and an ode to the character killed off in PLL 5x12 Taking This One To The Grave... AKA PLL's most recent #fatalfinale. I won't spoil it for you here, but eventually, I'll be linking my soon-to-be-written review here... so... you've been warned!

While I was painting my nails Tuesday night, I remembered a striping tape manicure I'd seen featuring gold and black that I totally should've pinned at the time and didn't. Sorry. :( Right then and there, I decided that the accent mani I was working on would turn into this!

I used a mix of striping tape and invisible Scotch tape on my nails. I've used striping tape before, but this was the first time I'd worked with regular tape. I was pretty pleased with how it turned out. Working with striping tape gets easier the more you work with it. There are a couple of places on my nails where the tape didn't stick as well as it should. I also have one nail that didn't really turn out like I had planned, but 9 out of 10 isn't bad right? Overall, I'm really pleased with how this turned out!

What do you think of my Geometric Mani?
