Copy Cat Wed

Late again, but better late than never, right?! Today, I have a manicure that is probably what first inspired me to start blogging my own nail art. I saw this on Pinterest, and then instantly became addicted to this blog. Chloe's Nails has some of the best tape manis I have seen, and now that I have it down, I decided to take on something a bit more challenging. She calls this a 'quilted mani'. I used different colors for mine, but kept the same general concept. Take a look!
This is Kat Von D Wonderchild, Pure Ice Kiss Me Here, Spoiled Black Mamba, and Sally Hansen Gem Crush Be-Jeweled

 Here is Kat Von D Wonderchild on it's own I won this pretty from a giveaway from Set In Lacquer! Thanks again!
Here is a closeup of my thumb. I'm really happy with how this turned out.


I realized after I finished that it would have been way easier if I had started with the triangle at the tip of the nail. This way I could have seen the lines of my 'x' and ensured that they were centered. When I attempt this one again, I will definitely try it that way to get it to look more perfect. 
Here it is with the flash!
I love the way this turned out, and was excited to get to use this polish I had won a while back. It's a great purple, and applied very nicely in just two thin coats. It will definitely be a go-to purple for me in the future. Thanks for looking! What do you think about my 'quilted mani'?
