Blue and Gold Stripe Nails

This is a simple design made using striping tape.

I started by painting my thumbs in 2 coats of a gold shade.

On the remaining nails I used 2 coats of a dark shimmery blue.

On the gold nails I used blue striping tape and lay 4 stripes across each nail in a random pattern. Unfortunately my top coat faded the colour a bit on the blue striping tape.

On the ring fingers I also used 4 stripes of striping tape across the nails in a random pattern but this time I used a gold coloured tape.

Colourful Lines Nails

This week’s design is a simple design with colourful stripes on top of a nude background. I painted the stripes freehand with a striping brush, as you can probably tell, as my lines aren’t exactly the neatest lol. I always both admire and envy nail art videos where the nail artist has such perfect brush control and can paint such perfect neat straight lines.

I started by painting all nails in a light cream/nude shade. I used 2 coats to get an even base colour. All colours that I used are from Barry M’s Coconut Infusion range.

I then took a striping brush and my first chosen shade for the stripes. I went with a sort of mint green colour. I painted the stripes so that they were at a different angle on each nail, but so that each hand matched.

I then took a light blue shade and the same size striping brush and placed a stripe directly to the side of the previous line.

I then repeated the same with my final colour which was a pink shade. I placed these stripes on the opposite side of the green line. However I think it would have been better to have the pink line in the middle as the green gets a bit camouflaged in with the blue.
