Born Pretty Store Striping Tape Review

Hello everyone! Sorry I haven't posted lately. Today I have a review for you of the striping tape from the Born Pretty Store.

My next couple posts will be guest posts from other blogs, so to keep with that theme, I will be featuring my moms nails today.

For this nail art, I did a gradient using OPI Steady As She Rose and OPI Pink Friday. My original intent was to place the tape, paint another color over top and then remove the tape, revealing the gradient underneath.

When I first attempted to peel off the tape, the layer of paint underneath came with it. I felt like her nails were dry enough, but it's possible they weren't. The tape was also very sticky, so I'm not sure if that had anything to do with it either.

Instead I decided to just apply the tape as stripes and leave them on there. I actually think I like this much better than what my original plan was.

I really love how the holographic look of the tape looks when paired with the creme gradient. My mom was quite please as well :)

This is what the one roll of tape looked like. There was a bit more tape when I received it, but I messed around with it some before I took this photo.

The tape was very easy to use, just unroll some, cut it, and place. Like I said, I did have difficulty with using it in such a way that I would be peeling it off to reveal what was underneath, but that could definitely have been user error. For the way I did use it, I just applied a layer of topcoat over it to help it stay longer.

Striping tape can be purchased from the Born Pretty Store for $1.90 a roll or $7.00 for all 12 different colored rolls.

As a gift, all my followers can use the code NHL91 for 10% off.

This product was sent to me for review. All of the above statements are my own honest opinions.
