I've seen a lot of these "lightning bolt" manicures around the nail polish circuit. I'm not a big fan of working with tape, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to give it a shot. Although some parts of my manicure are a bit wonky, I really like the result. Again, since I used Zoya, I experienced a bit of tip shrinkage.
I used Zoya Dovima, Xtreme Wear Celeb City, and Zoya Savita.
