How Long Did You Say This Took You?

... you don't even want to know! haha
If it hadn't been for my honey's sweet and supporting love messages, encouraging me not to give up, trust me!, I would have!

So... I've entered a competition on My Awesome Beauty, because I love Sophie's blog and since I had already participated in her previous one, way before I started this blog, I thought I should again.

It would be a good opportunity to step out of my comfort zone (you already know about my love-hate relationship with tape manicure) and I thought it would be, above all other things, well... FUN!

And it was, up to the third attempt at making a worthy design! I've hinted as much on yesterday's post, explaining why it was up so late ;)

I couldn't decide on a good colour combination, something happened with the tape, the design didn't come out as perfect as I thought it should and... ufff!, it was just all very unnerving!

In the end, the mani came through all right and at 3 a.m. I considered I had given it my all and went to bed. Keep your fingers crossed for me - not that I think I'll win, but I'm at least going for an honourable mention! hehe :)

This is what I ended up sending Sophie for the competition and... meh... it's not too bad, I think. You had to use tape and three different nail polish colours. 

I started with Purple Professional No.32 - you already know it's my favourite white base.
And then went with Rimmel's shimmery Pink of Me (No.294) and Inglot's lovely minty colour No.665.

So... what do you think?
Yey or nay? Tell me your opinion in the comments below.
Can't wait to see all the other girls' manis ;)

Tomorrow, be prepared!!!! For those of you who follow me on FB, you already know I found out about KIKO's texturized and pixie dust polishes. 
Well, I went a little crazy while shopping today and tomorrow I'll be showing you what I got! 

Till then, hope you have a yummi dinner and a warm comfy evening! :)

Hugs & Kissies,
