OMD Challenge Giveaway: Stripes

Hi lacquerheads!

First, as promised I added a tutorial for the flower petals mani that I did for the Purple theme. You can check it out here 😉

For the Stripes theme of the ‘Oh Mon Dieu! It’s the Rather Awesome 31 Day Challenge Giveaway’ I thought of doing a striping tape mani. But the weather is so warm that the polish dries twice at fast. So that might ruin it. Therefore I kept it simple:stripesThe base color is Green Gargantuan Grape by OPI. I’m so in love with this polish! Although it’s formula is on the thin side it is so easy to work with. I used two easy coats here. Then I added some stripes with a small nail art brush and the following colors:
Bond With Whomever by Essie
Princess by ANNY
white striper polish.

I think this turned out pretty. And it is so easy to do 😀

Ps. I’ll skip the dots and stars themes and try to catch up later this month. I’m dying to do another flower mani and I don’t want to get way behind again. Tomorrow I’ll show you my flower mani.

Duochrome striping tape mani

striping tape mani 2Here’s my striping tape adventure! I started this mani with two coats of China Glaze’s Liquid Leather and a top coat (Seche Vite). After that was completely dry I created a pattern with (a lot of!) striping tape (one nail at a time), used a thick coat of Ozotic 506 and immediately removed the striping tape. I finished with another coat of Seche Vite and voilĂ !striping tape maniThis mani has cost me a few hours! I love the result! What do you think?

If you’re thinking of creating such a mani, I advise to cut up A LOT of striping tape before you start. I know that you can’t tell how much you need before you start, but it’s annoying to find halfway the mani that you have to little (I know ;))

Oh and stay tuned for an exciting announcement from myself and Mommy Loves Nail Polish!
