Scalloped Edges

I love the scalloped edging trend and have been meaning to try it out on my nails for a while. A scalloped nail edge reminds me of a French tip, but with a bit of a twist.

To create this look I started with a white base coat. I then added a piece of striping tape across the top of each nail, and painted the nails orange up to the tape. After removing the tape I used a dotting tool to add the scalloping. It was a bit of a pain using the tape as I had to wait for the polish to dry fully first. I'm still trying to work out a way quicker way to create this lovely look.

I used two of Rimmel's Rita Ora polish range - Hot White Love* and Oragasm* (Emma's favourite polish name ever!). I've been dying to try out Oragasm as I've been after an orange polish for a while but wasn't brave enough to wear it. Over the white base this colour is incredible, it's so bright and rich and I love it!

Now I must remember to go back on a diet so I can fit into my favourite scalloped edged skirt and wear this nail design to match!
