Colour blocks and stripes nail art

Hello hi hi,

The weekend might have been long but we kind of just jumped back into the week like it never existed.  Have you had a good week so far? Mine’s been good, busy but good.  I don’t even know how we got to Wednesday so fast to be honest 😉  Did I mentioned we got some guinea pigs?  They are just the cutest little things but man oh man do they need to be won over.  I don’t think they got a lot of human attention before so they are a little skittish but I think I am slowly starting to win their trust.  Hoping to get some decent photos of them soon so that I can really introduce Curly, Larry and Moe to everyone.

I really like monochrome but I also like bright pops of colour.  This idea started off a little differently but I kinda liked the direction it went anyway.  Let me show you

I started with 2 coats of Sinful Colors – Snow me white on all my nails and left that to dry completely.  I then stamped on all my nails using Mundo de Unas – Black and Lina Feeling shapely 1.  This gave me the stunning stripes.  I then stamped on my ring and middle finger using Lina Feeling Shapely 9.  I first stamped the one triangle on each nail with Mundo de Unas – White and then stamped over that with Mundo de Unas – Yellow.  I then repeated the process again with the triangles slightly overlapping.  Doing a white triangle first and then another one over it using Mundo de Unas – Green.  I topcoated and ta-daaaa.

What do you think? Firstly, the stamped stripes are just delicious.  I tend to lean toward striping tape when I want stripes because they are more crisp and solid.  This plate has really nice stripes though.  I think the Feeling Shapely 01 plate is probably one of my most used so far.  With the layering options and those basic shapes and patterns we all love.  I also really like the brighter pops of colour with the monochrome stripes.  I kinda liked it.

Thanks for reading,

  1. Again those plates… 😉
    I really like the idea but I think it would look even better if the triangles were a bit smaller.
    Don’t change the colors though, they look great together!
