Theme no. 6 for the August Nail Challenge by Beautybulletin.com was: Stripes
And I decided to go with a Nautical Stripes feel..
This was a really fun look to do.. and wear.. And I will definitely be sporting these nails again a couple of times during the approaching summer Time in Cape Town 😉
To create this look, I did a full coat of the white on the entire nail & then made use of the ‘scotch tape method‘. applying strips of the tape horizontally, Painting on a coat of the blue polish, & then carefully removing the tape to reveal neat lines of the white. I then painted on the red lines inbetween the red and the blue.
I chose my ring finger as an accent nail, and instead of the red lines, I painted on a red anchor over the blue & white lines.
Here are the 3 colours that I used:
1.) Sally Hansen‘s Double Duty Top & Base coat (not in the photo)
2.) Blue Lightning & Pearl White by Top Shine
3.) Ralo Cosmetics‘ no 67 (shimmery red)
