I'm still getting back into the swing of nail art. For ages, I was solely into block colours, and even quit my glitter habit for a while - very odd for me! Anyhow, as we're edging closer to the summertime, I've found myself getting back into more decorative manicures. I got the idea for this from Dolly Rouge - I saw that Rachelle used the essence nail tip painter to create vertical stripes, and it was a real 'why didn't I think of that?' moment.

I did two coats of the white stripes and finished off with Orly Won't Chip. This really made a difference as it kind of smoothed the whole thing out and added a lovely shine. I loved the colours I used, too...very toothpaste-esque!
Overall, I found this really easy to do with the help of the super-cheap Essence nail striper. The finished look earned loads of compliments, and I can't wait to play around with more colours!
