Blue and Lavender Squares

I tried a new technique today, and I wasn't too thrilled with the result. I saw a great video where the blogger used striping tape to create a really cute geometric mani. In the past, I've typically just freehanded it, but the tape created such crisp lines that I had to try it at least once.

The end result was a little sloppy, probably because the top coat took off the metallic sheen from the tape. I'm not crazy about this one and think it would actually be a lot cuter using a striping brush.
For the base color, I used two coats of Essie Borrowed and Blue. The smaller squares are China Glaze Light as Air, which is a really soft, pale lavender.
