15 Day Nail Challenge - Day 12 - Stripes

striped nails

Arghh no! More fail nails. Pretty, yes. But these are not stripes! Not even diagonal stripes. You see I actually had a mind blank when I sat down to do my nails and thought lines instead of stripes! So please just ignore that I cheated a bit and imagine the striping tape is only horizontal! 

To do this I first painted my nails black (Orly Black Out) and then placed the shiny striping tape over my nails. I then cut off the excess tape with some nail clippers.Then I made everything matte by applying a coat of the Models Own Pro Matte Top Coat. Really simple and easy to do.

I actually prefer how the striping tape loots matte and definitely think when doing more nail art I may paint the tape matte before applying it over glossy nails. 

Here are all the other (non-cheating!) striped nails today...

Tomorrows theme is Film Inspired nails - one I have been really looking forward to for a bit! Just to clarify I talking movie/showbiz/film nails. So it could be maybe your favourite film or something film related for example red glittery nails and yellow brick patterns for Wizard of OZ.

Really looking forward to seeing what you all come up with! 

Fee xo.
