Stripey Punk Nails

Hey guys!


Today I've got a mani that was kind of born out of nothing, but I totally loved the end result! My favourite thing to do when I'm doing nail art is generally coming up with some sort of design using lines. I went in with this idea that I was going to do something linear. Then somehow these were born.

Cool eh? On my thumb, ring and pink fingers I used 2 coats of China Glaze Stone Cold from the Hunger Games collection. This is a matte, it's a dark gray base with some larger silver shimmer throughout. I used 2 coats of NYC French White Tip on my index and middle fingers. I then created a grid using my Black Stripe Rite striper on top of the white nails. Then I held onto my black striper and started creating X's on the other nails. I used my White Stripe Rite striper and my Pink Color Club striper from the Brights set to finish off those nails. Then I went back with my white striper and went over the black lines where I wanted the colour to be. I used my pink striper and my Yellow Color Club striper from the Brights set to create the lines on my accent nails. I finally took my black striper and finished off with a line between the pink and yellow stripes. Add a coat of Color Club top coat and I was done!

I loved these so much that I even managed to get the design on my right hand!! I changed the accent nails so that on my right hand the white nails were the main ones and the darker ones the accent. Please excuse my hand positions, my right hand has no idea how to pose lol.

Also excuse the tip wear, I wasn't going to take pictures, but then I loved having both hands done so much that I took pictures after a few days of wear. And one more picture of my left hand because it looks so much better lol.

I absolutely loved these nails and had so much fun wearing them! I kept having people ask me if they were nail stickers which made me really happy! 


What do you think about these nails? Like them as much as I do?
