Mixtape Mani

Music Nail Art

Remember when people would make mixtapes to give as gifts?  Now we just make digital playlists and don't really give them to anyone.  Sad.  Today I just did something really quick with some stamping and studs, as a throwback to the days of cassette tapes and vinyl records.  I still remember listening to my Four Seasons cassette tape.  I had different taste in music than most four year olds.

I decided I like the Disney manis that I paint with my right hand better, so I'm going to start doing non-Disney things with my other hand.  Or at least nail designs that don't require such intricate freehand painting. 

Nail Polish
Polish Used:
  • Wet n Wild Fergie - Ferguson Crest Syrah
  • Sinful Colors - Let's Talk
  • Wet n Wild Megalast - On A Trip
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Lacey Lilac
  • Forever 21 - Teal/Multi glitter polish
  • Bundle Monster Stamping Lacquer - Angelic White
  • Bundle Monster Stamping Lacquer - Black Noir
  • Base and top coats
Other Supplies:
  • Bundle Monster stamping plate - BM-601 (records and cassette tapes)
  • Rubber stamper
  • Silver start studs
  • Silver caviar beads

This mani is super fast and easy with just some basic stamping and stud placement.  To create this look:
  1. Apply the base colors - index and pinky in Let's Talk, middle in On A Trip, ring in Lacey Lilac, and thumb in Ferguson Crest Syrah.

  2. Apply a few coats of Forever 21's teal glitter polish to the pinky.

  3. Stamp the records (BM-601) with black stamping polish on the ring finger, and stamp a cassette tape with white stamping polish on the index.

  4. The purple Sinful Colors polish tends to bleed a lot once top coat is applied.  To take advantage of this transparency, I stamped two more cassette tapes on an opposite angle than the first.

  5. Apply three silver star studs to the middle finger, and dot silver caviar beads here and there around the stars.
