If you can't tell, I have been really in to tape manis lately. I have a type A personality and there is just something about a straight, clean edge that screams beautiful to me. Trust me when I say that I wish I had a type B personality. Art class was so hard in high school because everything had to be perfect and art is not about perfection. I loved clay but everything I did, as previously stated, had to be perfect. My best friend was a complete B personality and she could throw the most AMAZING pieces of artwork together in an hour and be showcasing her items in artshows. Where as my carefully planned out day and night projects got A's but never a ooooh or and aaahhhh and never the spotlight. Maybe this is why I love blogging and doing my nails. Because my blog is all about my artwork and it attracts people who are drawn to my style.

Well, all that to say, I have another tape mani for you. This is my first funky french on here, and I quite liked it. As much as I love a crisp, clean line, I think next time I will invest in some binder paper rings. You can see what I am refering to in this tutorial. I would like my french manicure lines to be a little rounder than they are in these pictures.

Are you a type A personality, or type B? Can you handle crazy fun nails, or do you like crisp, clean lines? lol.
