Summer Fun Challenge Day 2 - Summer Lovin'

Hey all!

For today's Summer Lovin' challenge we were supposed to do a lovey-dovey manicure. Problem is, I'm not great at being lovey dovey (just ask my boyfriend). I had planned to do some stamping but I couldn't really come up with anything great so I scrapped it and revisited my laser tape mani idea.

I applied one coat of Milani Beach Front, applied the striping tape and did one coat of Dutch Ya Just Love OPI. I don't know what took me so long to get this particular shade! When I saw the previews for the OPI Holland collection this pretty purple was at the top of my list but, when it actually came out, it never came home with me for some reason. I finally got it though! And best of all? There was a BOGO 1/2 off on OPI polishes when I went :)

Alright enough chatting, picture time.

V (boyfriend) <3 K (me). Subtle lovey-dovey is more my style. I do admit I'm a bit proud of how the rhinestone heart came out. I also knew not to wreck it with flakies like I did last time. Props to Sarah at ChalkboardNails are in order though, I got the idea for the color combo from her Laser-Tape Manicure post.

Hope you guys enjoyed my second post for the challenge and remember to see what the other ladies have done!


  1. This looks so clean, I can never get my taped stuff to go like this, well done :)

    1. Thank you! My trick is to just do one nail at a time, I take just a tiny bit longer but that way I can be sure to get the crispest line. Oh, the striping tape also helps greatly.

  2. The color combo is fantastic. Great job!

  3. Very cute. Love the color combo.

  4. The lines came out clean. :D

    Would you like to follow each other? :)

  5. OMG initials, so flippin adorable! I need that color.


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I really cherish each and every piece of feedback I might get.
