Teal Tuesday: 3 Color Mani

Hello Ladies!

Today's Teal Tuesday mani is pretty straightforward.  Three colors, at least one of the teal.  So I tried a tape technique that I've seen around the nail community.  The look was very easy to achieve and I see more of these mani's with different colors in my crystal ball.

I started off with Sinful Colors Black On Black for the base color.  Then I brought out my beloved China Glaze Bohemian's.  I used Deviantly Daring and No Plain Jane, one coat of each.

I included this last pic to hopefully show off the duochrome finish.  You can see that Deviantly Daring shows up more blue on the index and middle fingers, and more green on the other two. 
Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Polishing!


  1. I always have problems when I use tape for this kind of manicures so I chose to make it free hand, but it does not look as good as yours! Maybe next time I will be more patient and try it with tape! How much time did it take to make this design?

    1. I waited about 10 minutes between coats. This was fine for the initial black base coat, but the color coats need more timesince they are thicker. Had to do some touch-ups


I would love to hear what you think. I read all coments and respond as soon as I can.
