Purple shimmer and creme with striping tape: W is for: Wild With Passion and Wine And Dine

It’s letter W this week in the A to Z series challenge. I couldn’t decide between two purple Ws, so I used them both to create a half and half manicure with some striping tape inthe middle.

The cream on the top half of the nail is NYC Wild With Passion. It’s a red-toned purple, with a mildly jelly-like formula until a second coat is applied. After I’d painted the whole nail, I roughly added on a coat of H&M Wine And Dine on the bottom half of my nails. Then I covered the join with some purple striping tape, sent to me by Tara from Tara’s Talons.

The two colours are pretty similar, so the difference between the shimmer and the creme isn’t so obvious, except in close up.
