Armed Forces Vet Striping Tape

Today I've got some easy nail art for you featuring striping tape and a new to me brand Alter Ego.


I started out with a base of China Glaze Soled Out which is a vintage China Glaze polish, not sure when it was released. I picked it up on eBay awhile back. If you know then let me know!! :) I then added some silver striping tape along a third of my nail and then across the nail on about a third line as well. Finally I took Alter Ego Armed Forces Vet and filled in the square on my nail! This polish is filled with small metallic red, iridescent white, holo blue and holo silver in a clear jelly base. There are so many layering possibilities for this polish and I really look forward to trying them out! 



I loved the look of this polish!! I'll be wearing it as a full mani soon :) This was probably about 2 coats because I dabbed it on. I think it would be opaque in 3 coats and looks awesome layerd! I do wish the striping tape lasted longer on me. The next day it was starting to lift in some spots even with a topcoat. 



I loved the look of this, so simple and easy to achieve but a beautiful result in my opinion! 

What do you all think of this mani? Like it? Too simple for you? Let me know! Thanks for stopping by! 

By the way starting tomorrow I will be embarking on a nail art challenge with Emily of The Lacquerologist and Jessica of BeautyGnome! They are both fabulous nail artists and I'm so excited to be starting this with them tomorrow! :D Be sure to check in and see what we do!
