Day 12: Stripes

Allo polish Pals!
Happy weekend to you all! Do you have anything fabulous planned? Will you be watching the football? I'm not really in to football and last night when Holland won against Spain I was upstairs painting my nails but I knew we had won because suddenly everybody was letting off fireworks! Question: When England play Holland, who am I supposed to be cheering for?!
So I have just a short quick post to share with you today which is day 12 of the 31 day nail art challenge ~ Stripes!

I'm a little sorry about my pictures today, I don't think they are at their best :/
Anyway, I started with a coat of Catrice's 'Lilacally' and applied two coats of Model's Own's 'Southern Lights' which is a beautiful very fine but well packed holographic glitter. I smoothed this out with my topcoat and then used striping tapes to create my stripes. Finally I applied Yes Love's black polish on top and finished with my top coat.

I was hoping the glitter would really pop out of the stripes and I guess it did a little, while it may be simple it is at least stripes!

What do you think of this manicure; Do you have something like this glitter in your collection?
I hope you have a beautiful Saturday!

Love
Ithi

  1. Ooh the holographic glitter looks great! I think it pops out of the manicure enough, it looks gorgeous in contrast with the black!

  4. Very nice work! Your stripes are so neat! I have no glitter like that but I own very few glitter polishes. I am not into football, too. But I usually hear everyone cheering when Germany hit a goal :)

    1. Thank you, Stadtwaldvogel, I would die without striping tape, ha :) Its the same here with the cheering! Maybe with that alone I don't need to watch the football to know how Holland is scoring! xx

  6. I don't follow football, but a bunch of my co-workers do, so I've been hearing plenty about it. :) This mani is beautiful! I love the color combo. The black just makes the sparkles pop so much more! :)

  7. I have no idea what's going on in soccer/football... it's kind of awkward though because the company i work for sponsored the broadcast so the entire workplace is decorated for fifa and we are all wearing shirts to support a country that's playing... customers keep trying to talk to me about soccer and i honestly have no idea whats going on i just picked my shirt based on what color i like! =p

    love the striping tape mani! the glitter and black goes really well together!

    1. Oh dear that's quite an awkward situation!! I'm glad that everyone who knows me just knows I wont say anything that means much when it comes to football. I literally shocked people recently because I really thought that 'offside' just means running outside the 'rectangle' lol. Thank you so much for your kind words :) <3 xx
