Birthday sponging & tape manicure with OPI and SpaRitual

Hello lovelies

This is the manicure I've worn to the Olympia Beauty exhibition and it's also my birthday manicure because I'm still wearing it today! Yes, it's my birthday today and I want to announce that I will be publishing a giveaway very soon as I want to treat you guys for being such wonderful readers! I've done bday giveaway last year and I've had an amazing response and the winners were so grateful it warmed my heart!

This manicure is a combination of tape and sponging techniques and it was designed to complement a powder pink dress I wore to the Olympia Beauty exhibition. I've used OPI DS Reflection, OPI If You Moust You Moust and SpaRitual Aurum.

Firstly, I've painted my nails with OPI DS Reflection and applied Seche Vite topcoat. When it dried I've used striping tape and applied it on the nail in the diagonal lines. Then I started sponging pink OPI If You Moust You Moust to the 3/4 of the nail. The next step was to create golden tips which I've done by sponging SpaRitual Aurum on the tips. Then I've removed the striping tape and sealed with another coat of Seche Vite. And there you go, easy (but time-consuming)!
