Holidays IV, The Tape

Yeah, that's right the tape! Every year I buy more tape (usually in a 3-pack) for wrapping presents, even though I still have at least 5 unopened rolls at home.  For the past two years I have not bought any tape...and I still have 6 rolls (possibly more) floating around. So, I found a couple awesome things that I could use this tape for.

First up: Cat Eyes! I am a licensed, though not "practicing" cosmetologist...people used to pay me good money to do their makeup.  I am ashamed to admit that I was never able to do a good cat eye on myself...until this life changing tutorial!



Wooot! I am ready to vamp it up, rawr.  Now I will keep a roll of tape with my makeup.  (I used Stila Smudge Pot liner in gray)

Second: Nail art! Though, I will admit that gift wrap tape can be hard to see on freshly polished nails, so next time I might try masking tape...I buy a lot of that and neon duct tape, too. Apparently my hoarding tendencies extend beyond yarn and nail polish!

funky tree

funky tree right trees are a little wonky, since the tape was a little hard to see in my poorly lit living room at night....but, ooooooooh shiny (and bokeh)! Time for a roll of tape to go in with the nail polish! (I used Milani 3D Holographic lacquer in Cyberspace for the base color and Orly in Lucky Duck for the tree)

I hope you have some fun with tape....even if you are only wrapping presents ;D


  1. I am SOOO glad to see that I'm not the only licensed manicurist/cosmetologist who's no longer in a salon, and now satisfying the creative urge to play with color by playing with yarn ;)

  2. Funny, isn't it?! I like yarn so much more ;)
