Challenge 5 - Stripes

Back for the next instalment in the challenge a few friends & I came up with. This week it's all about the stripes.

I think I'm going to try something else in the week, when I get the striping tape the very awesome Saz sent me, but for now I have two, not great attempts. 

First one is the Rainbow stripes. This took AGES! Never again. The most disappointing thing was I did it all free hand, so it looks even crappier. 

I would tell you what I used, but I used so many different polishes, it would take ages to type them all down. With the thumb, I used tape, but I wasn't too impressed, & couldn't cut the strips down thin enough, so the rest I did free hand. I finished it with my matte top coat, just because I'm so in love, & can see myself using it a lot.
Needless to say, as soon as I took the photo, I cleaned it all off. I think this could look amazing, but it took so long, I can't see my attempting it again.

The next attempt was something quick & easy,  but this was done at about four in the morning, so looking at it the next day it was a bit of a shock how messy it was.

I used Sally Hansen 'Thinking of Blue'as the base coat, & Rios white nail art pen. The only one I really like Is my little finger, so again I've taken this one off.

I have a few ideas of what I want to play with next, & as I can't seem to sleep, I'm going to have a go at a few designs tonight. 

Catch you laters

  1. I love the rainbow stripe one, I fully thought you'd used striping tape until you said you'd done it freehand! It looks fab x
