31DC 2.0 - Stripes

Hi all!

Today I've got some stripes for you, for some reason I went with grey and blue again (remember this mani?), but it's different anyway.

The long list, from left to right:
  • NYC - 003 Prey of Grey
  • W7 - 28 Black
  • Essence - Sparkle Sand Effect - 165 Here's my number
  • OPI - Push and Shove
  • Sally Hansen - Pacific Blue (old version)
  • Nail Pattern Boldness - Glitter Food
  • Glisten & Glow - HK Girl top coat

I started out with a plain grey base and then just started adding stripes with my striping brushes. Because my accent nail is Here's my number over black, I added some of it on the other nails as well. It's textured so I added a coat of Glitter Food to smooth things out. Unfortunately some stripes "moved" making them not so straight anymore. Glitter Food dries matte, so I added HK Girl top coat for a glossy finish.

Most moving on my thumb sadly.

If you're into stripes, the October prompt for The Nail Challenge Collaborative is stripes... so I'll have to do more of them *winks*.


  1. Awesome job on the stripes. I like that they go in different directions.

    1. Thanks, I had meant to do the little fingernail differently, but I wasn't thinking when I put the first stripe on ;)

  2. You lucky woman, you have the old version of Pacific Blue :) Beside that you made a gorgeous manicure, love the effect of the stripes!

    1. Thank you! I snatched that old version in a discount store, after I heard all the fuss with the new version *winks*
