Stripes and Studs Nail Look

Hello Lovelies,

I've been wanting to use the nail studs that Born Pretty Store sent me a little while back but my nails have been chipping a lot lately so I was waiting for them to be in better shape.
I didn't want to use the studs alone I knew I wanted some nail tape to go along with them so I placed an order on Amazon and received 30 rolls of colorful nail tapes. I know I'm going to have a lot of fun with them.

For this nail look I kept it very simple. First, I painted my nails with 2 coats of Color Club Fashion Addict, which is a pretty pale lavender holo.

After the nail polish dried, I applied the tape. I chose a bright metallic magenta because it added a nice pop of color and contrast against the base color.
Since this is my first time using these types of tapes, it took me quite a while to get used to them and get them aligned just the way I want them.

After I finished applying the tape, I added a top coat over the nails. That was a huge mistake! The top coat dulled the holo effect of the polish as well as the shine from the tape. It also made the tape look worst. I didn't like that but oh well. You can't see the imperfection unless you look closely.

Lastly, I applied some nail glue at the center of where the lines meet and inserted a gold stud there.

So overall, it's very simple, fairly easy and looks so good! I'm not used to wearing studs or rhinestones on my nails and I find myself picking at them.

What do you think? Every tried nail tape? I can't wait to try a new look with those tapes.
