OK, I was going to save this to post later, but I can't. This is my first patchwork mani. Of course this is inspired by the blog Chloe's Nails. She does wonderful things with scotch tape.
I will warn you that the pics look a little bad because of the skin on my fingers. I forgot to mix the Blue Cross Cuticle Remover with water so I'm having peeling issues with the tips of my fingers for a few days. I'd planned to take more/better pictures this morning, but that was a no go. Before I went to sleep, I put some vaseline on my fingers then put some gloves on so it didn't get anywhere. BIG mistake. Apparently my nails weren't completely dry yet, and so the middle of each nail from top to bottom is ruined with a funky type texture.
I started off with my Sinful Colors base coat & 2 coats of Zoya Yasmeen. I marked off a square using scotch tape & painted Zoya Kieko.
Then, I marked off a square opposite Kieko on each nail & painted Marley.
I really wish I hadn't messed it up royally. At least it gives me an excuse to play with more Zoya. I really love the way Kieko matches Yasmeen perfectly, IMO.
