See what I did there? No? Oh, might be a bit soon 😉
I have been wanting to try this for ages. Since getting my hands on some L.A. Colors stripers I knew now was the time to try it. I didn’t take my lack of skills into consideration though. Remember the time(s) I said that you won’t find anything perfect on this blog? Well, today is a prime example of it. 😛
I started off with 2 coats of Essence – 1000 miles. (Is it making sense yet?) and then with my black L.A. Colors striper I made lines horizontally across. Starting with longer lines at the bottom of my nail I just made each line shorter the closer I got to the tips. This way I ended up with stripes all the way up my nails (You’re getting it now aren’t you? 1000 miles of stripes?).
I really liked how this turned out even though it was nowhere near perfect. In fact, I could get stripers in every single colour just to try this a hundred times over. Can you imagine this in a dirty pink with white stripes? Or even a minty green with white. So many options!! I will just have ro practice a little bit more on those perfect stripes. I guess you could you striping tape if you wanted to? I also had the added hassle of my top coat dragging and smearing some of the lines. If I waited a few more minutes I am sure it would’ve been fine though.
Just a quick look at something I tried. Once again a promise that everything will get shared, even the not so great stuff 😉 In that light, I am sharing the giveaways. Don’t forget about the week 1 and week 2 giveaways that are already up! Go enter.
Thanks for reading!
