Pinstripes

Hey guys! I've been posting less and less because my finals are drawing closer. So please forgive me and wish me luck! :)

The design that I have here today was sort of spontaneous and wasn't something that was planned. I get bored of my manicures quite quickly and so, I tend to add stuff to it everyday.



I was wearing Models Own Beth's Blue as my base. I apologize for the sloppy application because the formula for this polish was quite thick and wasn't as easy to work with.



I then added one stroke of Chanel's Nouvelle Vague over half of the nail for the contrasting green.



Next, I added the white pin stripes with Sally Hansen's Nail Art pen. You could also do this with a striper brush and some white polish but I find the pens easier to use since I always lose control of the brush when I reach the curved parts of my nail.



And there you have it. A sweet and simple striped manicure that you can jazz up with other contrasting colors :)

Hope you enjoyed this post and thanks for reading! ❤
