40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Orange, Purple and Green - Tape

I'm back for another instalment of Crumpet's Nail Tart Presents 40 Great Nail Art Ideas, and this weeks colour theme is Orange, Purple and Green. I know what you're thinking, great combo for Halloween nails, but not when you get stuck with Tape mani as your pattern prompt :/

Barry M Gelly Hi Shine in Mango seemed to be the perfect bright orange base for my design. I used three thin coats and topped off with HK Girl fast dry top coat.

In my stash I already had some striping tape and happened to have the colours purple and green, how convenient! So I started to apply the tape diagonally across each nail, alternating between the colours. I really dislike striping tape :( it's very fiddly and I can never apply them in the same position as what it is on the other nails. 

To be truthful, I'm quite pleased with how they turned out. Every time I look at them I just think of Halloween Candy Canes! Are they a real thing already? If so, I've never seen any in the UK.

What do you think of my take on this weeks theme?
