arn't they so cool?! i love the neon yellow contrasted with the black stripes, and think it's even cooler that Alice was inspired to do these from looking at a dress! (see her post here) i however, am the worst at free-handing stripes on myself so i opted for an easier option. nail plates. the zebra print specifically (m57). here's what i used:
so if you didn't catch it from my first pic, i used
» white (pure ice:starstruck) as my basecoat, let dry.
» took scotch tape and taped half my nails, painted half green(pure ice: wild thing. 1 coat works fine, but i used 2...it's habit), let dry.
» taped the other half of my nails and stamped them with (wet n' wild: black creme; nail plate m57)
» top coat (NYC:matte me crazy)
one thing that's suuuuuper important any time you use tape: let it dry completely! i can't say it enough. i actually did the white and green last night during movie time with the hubs, and then did the zebra half this morning.
*by the way, do you have a favorite yellow polish you use? one that's good and thick?
i haven't had much luck with yellow, but then again i think i have only bought one(haha!). it's super watery and i hate it-it's a Salon Perfect brand...
