It was only a matter of time before my love of stripes reached places other than my wardrobe. Those of you following me on Instagram may have noticed a striped nail sneak peek from prior chocolate tuxedo covered strawberry adventures. Yes they taste as good as they sound and/or look!
Follow these simple steps to achieve fun striped nails.
YOU WILL NEED:
- White nail polish
- Blue nail polish
Prepare strips of tape.
Note: You will need three strips per nail. My strips were approximately a quarter of a centimetre wide.
Apply base coat to nails and let it dry.
Note: I used ORLY Bonder.
Apply two coats of white nail polish to nails and let it dry.
Note: I used ZOYA 'Snow White'.
Apply three strips of tape to each nail with approximately equal spacing.
Note: This will achieve two stripes per nail. Apply extra strips of tape for additional stripes as per your nail length.
Apply blue nail polish between strips of tape onto nails and let it dry.
Note: I used NAILS INC 'Baker Street'.
Remove strips of tape from nails once blue nail polish has dried.
Apply top coat to nails and let it dry.
Note: I used O.P.I 'Top Coat'.
This striped manicure was relatively straight forward and a lot of fun to do. It would also look great with a variety of other colour combinations. I highly recommend trying it out!
