Haute Couture nails using Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear

Hi all
Today I am showing you my entry for Sally Hansen I heart nail art contest. This months theme is inspiration from the runway. I googles haute couture, and got a lot of hits, mostly bright colors and a lot of sequins. I finally ended up with a dress that had a lot of lines and was different from everything else I was looking at. After I chose my picture I needed to bring out my nail tape ( oh oh !) BUT!!!!!!I'm really proud of this mani !  I have to face it... I'm not very skilled at tape manis and this mani needed crisp lines which my art brush could not accomplish. Fortunately with the mercy of the nail polish gods, my lines came out super clean Yeay!
Pin It
For this look I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Mellow Yellow, The grey is Zoya Carey and The black is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Black out. I topped it all off with a coat of Seche vite. For my lines I used nail art tape. I have to say that the best tape I use is the white nail art tape. it doesn't bleed when it is painted over ( my red, blue, pink and green tape bleed :/) . I also waited about 10 minutes for the yellow and grey base coat to dry before adding tape. Hey this is for a competition so you know I had to be patient.

This is my inspiration Armani Prive 2013, I wouldn't mind owning this dress.

I love this mani, like I said in my information for this mani, yellow is a strong color but I think I successfully tones it down.

The art contest will be judged on many categories, photography, Creativity and originality, and use of Sally Hansen products and public vote. So if you would like to vote for me click here , my entry is under my name @Bibian Bard.
Thanks for reading enjoy!
