Stripes Revisited!

Yep, I re-did my holiday stripes manicure  I wasn't all too pleased how the first attempt at "stripes" went, and decided to re-do them and make them for symmetrical to each other and I have to say I am very pleased with the results. :)


















So pleased I wore this manicure for 5 days, and received compliments almost everyday :)



























I started with a 2 coats of Orly "Shine" and then applied the nail striping tape, and painted China Glaze "Ruby Pumps" in between each piece of tape.  I waited 1 minute and then removed the tape and cleaned up the edges with my brush and remover. :)



























These pics are after 5 days, and still no major chips and only visible tip-wear!

I did my usual double top coat method, and I also used Orly Bonder over my usual base coat of OPI Nail Envy, to get more wear out of the manicure. :)



























Taking more time to make sure the stripes were symmetrical makes a big difference, and the entire manicure looks better :)








































Happy Friday and Keep It Sweet!

Love it! I need to try something like this. But, it requires patience, which I have little of, LOL.

So pretty! Ahh, I think I have to go pick up a bottle of Orly Shine and re-create this. I bought China Glaze Ruby Pumps and love the color.

Such a cute mani!
