More fun with taping!  This one was really easy but made for a fun effect — first a base of OPI Are We There Yet? in two coats (love the salmon shimmer in this) followed by some taping.  Just took some masking tape, cut it at a 90 angle and laid it on the nail to create a dart at the bottom of the nail.  Then I used American Apparel African Violet, Color Club Pucci-licious and Kleancolor Iridescent Fuschia to sponge over most of the nail that was left after taping, pulled off the tape, and used a smaller brush to outline the angle.  Finally a little bit of Sally Hansen HD DVD dabbed on top of the purple for a little shimmer effect and I’m done.
