I am on cloud 9 at the moment. My beautiful cousin and her husband had their beautiful little boy yesterday. Yes, our godson is here!!! Remember I did this when we knew he was a he? I can’t believe he is finally here. But I will tell you more later 😀
After today there is just one more working day left for this week. Yay! I am quite looking forward the long weekend and all the busy-ness it brings. With Easter just days away I have another something eastery to show you 🙂
For Valentines day I did a similar striped look which I found via pin on Pineterest. You can see that here. I decided to just change up the colour a little bit to suit the easter theme. See, I told you you could switch up in many many colours 😉 **Edited to add** Even though I was completely unaware of it at the time, I have since seen Running With Lacquer has done almost exactly the same thing that she posted on Instagram. She definitely deserves the credit!
I started off with 2 coats of Tip Top – Armour plate on all my nails. Once that was completely dry, I taped off the sections using striping tape. I then painted in the lines using:
- Yellow, Sinful Colors – Unicorn
- Orange, Sinful Colors – Orange cream
- Pink, Sinful Colors – Cotton Candy
- Lilac, Sinful Colors – Candy Coated
in that order. Except on my ring finger where I reversed the order. I did one nail at a time and made sure to pull off the tape as quick as I could. You can probably see on my pinky I made a little oopsie where the polish ‘leaked’ under the tape.
I really like this stripy look. I liked it for valentines and I like it for easter too. What do you think of it? What colours would you have used? What other occasion would you use the stripes for?
I have entered the Nailpolis Easter nail art contest. If you have a minute to spare, please could you pop on over here and cast a vote. Thank you so much.
