Creamy Punch Stripes

Allo polish Pals!
How are you doing? I hope your having a good weekend. Are any of you getting your days muddled up? I think because Christmas was on a Wednesday that it really doesn't feel like a Saturday, you know what I mean? Over Christmas I was an extremely lucky girl and did receive some of the polishes I had been lemming over for the past few months, one of those was Barry M's 'Lychee'.
It seemed only right to crack this one out and create something bright!

I started with two coats of Barry M's Lychee on all my nails and created alternating half manicure's/full taped nails using striping tape and Model's Own 'Pink Punch'. I finished off by applying some cute bright candy studs from the Born Pretty Store. It's pretty basic really. I actually created this Boxing day evening and I loved it so much... I still wasn't sure I'd done the best job I could but it actually came out a lot smoother and neater then here. Sometimes I shouldn't be so damn fussy, hehe!

What do you think of this cream and neon creation? Do you like using striping tape as much as I do?

Have a gorgeous day,
Love
Ithi

    1. Thank you Bubica, I preferred the full nail pattern too but I didn't want it to repeat too much! I'm becoming a fan of neon polishes too! :)

    1. Thank you Lou! I'm really feeling the nude/neon clash too, I am so tempted to create another tape design with lychee but I must refrain! xx

  4. Thankyou for your comment :) I really like this colour, such a useful colour for a base coat as anything will go with it but I love the neon with it, it really makes the colour pop out! I love using striping tape but sometimes it just gets a bit fiddly and takes so long to do but the end results always look brilliant! I love your blog so I'm now following on bloglovin. Hope you had a great Christmas too :)

    1. You are welcome! I couldn't agree more, I can see lychee being great for all sorts of nail art, even as a water marble base perhaps! I used to find it fiddly but I think I have become used to have tape stuck all over the place hehe. Thank you so much for following back :) I enjoyed reading your posts! xx

  5. I love the combination of cream and neon -- Lychee has to be one of the most amazing polishes ever :) The studs are a nice touch, too!

    I love the combination you've put together too, I wouldn't say it could be neater either its a lovely job! :D
