Seedy Stripes

Today I've got some interesting nail art to show you! I am loving the combination of teal, gray, white and black lately and went in that direction when I sat down to do these nails.

I started out with 2 coats of Barielle Do Unto Others from the 2011 Spring/Summer Karma Collection. This is a gorgeous turquoise creme that I am head over heels for. Then I took Barielle U-Concrete-Me from the 2009 All Lacquered Up collection and with the polish brush went over Do Unto Others on half of my nail with either a straight line or a diagonal line alternating top and bottom. I wasn't too particular about being exact because I knew I would be going over it later. I then added a coat of NYC In a Minute top coat.

I then took Sally Hansen White On and created a line between the gray and turquoise. Doing this one nail at a time while it was still wet I sprinkled black microbeads over my nails and then pushed them into the polish with an orange stick. I didn't top coat these because I wanted the caviar look in the stripes.

I actually loved wearing these! I wore them with a teal top, black jeans and white flats with some silver earrings. Very matchy, matchy I know, but I got a lot of compliments on the outfit and the nails! I would have taken a picture of the outfit, but living alone that's hard to do lol. 


I picked up these Barielles at Winners in a pack of 5 for $6.99!! On two of the bottles there were chips out of the bottom, but that doesn't affect the polish now does it? I'm really glad I found these because I love both these colours, especially Do Unto Others. 


What do you think of my seedy striped look? Would you wear something like this? 


I hope you're all having a great Sunday! Thanks for stopping by! :D

  2. I love it! very creative take on the caviar mani! How long did the beads last on your nails? I'm always afraid that this would take me longer to do than it would last on my nails, lol

    1. Thanks BeautyScraps! I wore it for just over 24 hours, it's usually how long all my manis last. It actually takes hardly any time at all! Just apply the wet polish, sprinkle the beads over the wet area and then push the beads into the polish. Then you need to wait about 10-15 minutes for them to dry into the polish before moving around. :) I hope that helps!

  3. I love the colors together and adding the microbeads is so fun. I don't think I could pull this off because I would probably be picking the beads off all day long.
