Stripes Are In

This design rocks because it’s stupid easy, and looks way more sophisticated than it actually is; plus you can get creative with color choices (I like to hold out one hand at a time and say, “Now it’s pink. No, now it’s blue. Now it’s pink again! It’s whatever I want!”).

You’ll notice my stripes aren’t exactly what one would call, erm, clean. I was kinda late to the game to some of these super really dumb-simple nail design tips:

1. When working on a design like polka dots or stripes, wait until all the polish is dry to apply topcoat, or the topcoat tends to streak.

2. When using tape to create stripes, pull off the tape as soon as possible. For some reason products that do this kind of thing (french tip tape, for example) say to let the polish dry completely before removing.

False. This is so wrong I can’t even describe how wrong it is. It is wronger than wearing an old wedding gown to your great uncle’s funeral.

Well. Now we know.

For this design I used:

-Revlon French Roast

-Sinful Colors Timbleberry

-Sinful Colors Savage

(I may or may not use Savage and Timbleberry in freakin’ everything)

(you’ve probably noticed by now)

(that’s because they are THE BEST.)
