Right Down The Middle

Starting off with two coats of Electric Purple by Accessorize and waiting for it to dry before applying scotch tape at a diagonal. Then using Models Own in Lemon Meringue on the tips (two coats) and waited for this to dry a bit before peeling the tape off.


Then dotting along the line where the purple and yellow meet with Andrea Fulerton's Dot and Flick tool. I was a bit too speedy and didn't allow enough time for the black dots to dry and I smudged them when applying a top coat. I hope this isn't too obvious.






I love the how the purple and yellow look together, what do you think?

  3. Love this! Minnesota Vikings colors, and we are Vikings fans in this house. Woohoo! I might have to copy this look when we go to a game later this year.

  5. Like Deb up there, I also thought of the MN Vikings (football team) at first. I couldn't care less about football, so the second thing I thought was, how cute! I bet this would be so cute for Easter with a more pastel purple or a light pink. xoxo

  6. Those two colours go really well together, it looks cool. I wouldn't have noticed the smudging if you hadn't mentioned it. :) Xx

  7. Purple and yellow are opposites on the colour chart so they always go well together! :D

  8. I love the color combination and the dots are a great way to spice up the basic scotch tape mani, I'll have to keep that in mind!
