Once again I unpacked my favorite autumn colors to use them all together in one design. I started with once coat of China Glaze - Dress Me Up. My plan was to add studs over the striping tape line once I was done, so I chose the base color only in case the studs wouldn't cover all the line. Next I added two pieces of striping tape across each nail and started painting the squares with my colors. I used the same on every nail except for my dark blue and dark brown. I chose to vary these two on every nail. So the colors used are the following: China Glaze - Foie Gras (Dark Brown), p2 - Night Out (Dark Blue), Essie - Sew Psyched (Olive), Essie - Angora Cardi (Purple) and p2 - Goodnight Kiss (Orange-Brown).
After I was done with the squares, I decided to leave out the studs because I didn't think they would fit my colors. But I kind of regret my color choice for the base since I was very tempted to go over the cross with a golden stripper. But then again it would have been a pity for all the striping tape work. Maybe next time! On top is one coat of Essie - Good To Go.
Have a great weekend!
