Bright Green & Fuchsia Lightning Bolts [Nail Art]

I wasn't really feeling Saint Patrick's Day nails this year, so I decided to just incorporate some green into my existing manicure.

This is my first time doing lightning bolts with the taping method.  They turned out okay, I guess?  But the proportions and angles aren't quite right.

Jane of Nailside has a great, basic tutorial with photos.

I used Sinful Colors- Dream On and Illamasqua- Radium, because I lurve green and purple together.

Also, the tape pulled up some polish on my middle nail, so it's a bit of a nail art fail.

I love taping in general, so I need to keep practicing these!

Have you guys ever tried lightning bolts?
