Saturday's Stripey NOTD (aka Using Nail Stripers for the First Time)

 Currently watching: Have I Got News For You

Good morning girls!

Welcome to the weekend :-)  What do you have planned for the next couple of days?  Anything fun?  Unfortunately I have to dedicate the majority of my weekend to studying but you can be sure I'll allow myself lots of study breaks to catch up with your blogs ;-)

Do you remember a few weeks ago I bought some nail stripers?  Well I used them for the first time during the week and came up with this:


I start with a base of All About Nails Honey Pink and then applied random stripes of colour using five of my six stripers ( I didn't think the sixth colour, black, would work for this manicure).


I was pleasantly surprised by how easy the stripers were to use.  I don't have the steadiest hands but even "shaky" stripes look good!


I really loved this manicure and am so excited about all the possible designs my new nail stripers open up!


Do you like this manicure girls?  Do you use nail art stripers?


Bye for now,
Laura

    1. Thanks :-) As for my nail length, I was thinking the same the other day! It was only three pages ago that I cut my nails, lol. Nearly time for another severe chop though :-(

  2. This is really cute! I have stripers but I'm afraid to use them... I might try a homage of sorts to this mani! ;)

    1. Thanks! I'm not sure how I would use them to create any other kind of design but for a stripey manicure like this, they're fabulous, nothing to be afraid of. Let me know when you try yours!

  6. I'm with another reader, it made me think of that beautiful ribbon candy that my grandparents used to keep around their house. Hope your studying goes well!

    1. Thanks! I'm sure I have a brush designed like a striper but I haven't dared try that. So easy to neglect the brushes!
