The Nail Challenge Collaborative: Stripes: Week 1

Hello lovelies!

I have another quick post you guys because you know, I have to get up early for that school thing. But after I make it through today's classes, I get a five day weekend! Woo! I can paint so many designs, I'm pumped haha (:

But, onto today's nails!

Here's what I used:

I know we took a minute of silence to recognize how amazing Zoya's Ignite collection is earlier in the week but I think we need another one because look at Sansa! How can you not be in love with it?! I just want to wear it all the time now that I've tried it.

These nails started with two coats of Sansa and a layer of HK Girl. Then using the bigger striping brush and the white acrylic paint to paint on some wavy lines. I then used the smaller striping brush and the other two polishes to paint within those stripes. Everything was sealed in with another layer of HK Girl.

This month's theme for the Nail Challenge Collaborative is stripes which I was dreading because most stripe manicures are made up of straight lines and those are a pain to paint. But I'm happy with how these turned out!


Thanks for reading guys!

  1. Interesting stripes these are. Kind of remind me of kelp for some strange reason.

  9. Looooooooooove these, they're like long strands of kelp... in different colours, but that's what they remind me of. I really like how there's a small white border around them, makes them stand out more!
