Nude, White & Black Stripes

For today some simple stripes with some simple colors.

I used two coats of Essie - Blanc and then started doing the stripes with a nail art brush. First I applied the lighter color: Essence - Iced Latte and then the black stripes with Wet 'n' Wild - Black Creme

I still need to work on my freehand skills and stripes are a great way of learning how to use the brush. I've made the experience that the stripes look best when the whole brush touches the nail and I pull it fast from one side to the other. It is still a little shaky though, so I will continue practicing!

  1. simple and classy, but I like it a lot!

  2. This is a pretty design! It has a really classy vibe to it! And well done with the freehand lines! I'm waiting on striping tape before I attempt horizontal stripes again, my nail beds are fairly curved so it's hard to get them straight, they always end up slightly diagonal! LOL

    1. Thank you so much! I actually like striping tape as well so the lines get perfect. But the waiting is annoying, so I just go for freehand ;)


Thank you for taking the time to comment on my post, I appreciate it a lot!
