Tri-Polish Challenge: Stripes

Hello all! Here is my second manicure for the Tri-Polish Challenge.

Quick refresher from my first post:

This is from the facebook nail bloggers’ group Crumpet’s Nail Tarts, where you choose 3 polishes from your stash and use them in 4 manicures for a month. You can use neutral colors like white, black, beige to complete your manicure as well. For the month of June, the colors are red, pink, and purple. I chose OPI Diva of Geneva (purple), Color to Diner For (red), and Sparrow Me the Drama (pink) to use in all four manicures.

For this one, I did a stripe of each color on each nail, waited for it to dry; then I applied 3 pieces of striping tape to each nail, and painted OPI Alpine Snow over the striping tape. I took off the striping tape, and viola!

Do I like it? Yes. Do I love it? No, not quite. Since the white is so overwhelming, I think I should have made my stripes wider, to let the colors underneath be more prominent. Oh well! Live and learn! What do you think about it?

Don’t forget to check out the other ladies’ TPC manicures!

As always,

    • That’s what I was thinking – a bit of candy canes on my nails. 😛 You must have a ton of swatching to do, but remember what makes you happy about doing your nails, and do that! 🙂
