Artsy Wednesday: Stripes

Hi y'all! Today's theme is stripes. I love bold stripes, but I like to explore new things on Artsy Wednesday, so instead I replicated a mani from Let's Polish Some Nails, with almost no changes, because it's really perfect the way it is! But I jazzed up an accent nail with some gems and hearts, because I just couldn't help myself.



I actually redid some nails a few times because the stripes were too even - I wanted them a bit uneven and graphite-looking.

Base: OPI Skull and Glossbones
Stripes/hearts: ulta3 Black Satin
Glitter: China Glaze White Cap

I kept this mani on for 5 days, which must be some kind of record for me... and I played with the gems THE WHOLE TIME. :P And, it didn't peel or chip - OPI win!

More stripey goodness:

    1. Haha - amazingly it also didn't chip or show much tipwear during that time! I have no idea why, maybe because there are a lot less layers than I usually have with all my taping stuff?
