31 Day Challenge! Day 12- Striped Nails

Hi guys!!

  So while working on today's challenge I learned a valuable lesson: Don't work on your nails when you are hungry. I really rushed on these and I like them but they could have been so much better if I had taken my time. All I could think of was stuffing my face hole.... The fact that I'm no striping wiz doesn't help either lol... But, that being said... These look pretty cool from far away...
  So for this look I started with Two coats of ManGlaze Mayonnaise. That gets its own post because I have several pics of it and I I haven't worn it in soooo long! Ok.. so back to the look. After painting my base I freehanded a wide stripe of Zoya's Dana down the center of my nails. For finishing touches I used Stripe Rite stripers from Sally's in Silver Glitter and Black Glitter. I finished the whole thing off with Two coats of Seche Vite because the Stripe Rites are hungry glitters.

Ok, so I'll be back later with a Mayo post and don't  forget to check out Sam and Rie's blogs to see their Striped nails!


Thanks for stopping by :D,
♥ Cristina

  8. I love this striped manicure, it's really chic. I think having stripes going down nail makes them look longer. Love the colours too.X

  20. The black glitter is AWESOOOOME!! I wonder if you'd be able to do a mani with just that polish. With a brush bigger than the striping one, of course. LOL Are the black stripes just one coat or did you go over it a few times to get it this opaque?
