It's Friday! Woot! And it's getting mighty close to Christmas... so here I am with a Christmas manicure!
I'm addicted to striping ya'll - I have a million color combinations in my head I want to try! So it only made sense for me to do stripes in a holiday color theme!
More afer the jump!
My base color is China Glaze Def Defying which I showed you yesterday. I added the stripes with Zoya Elisa. Elisa is part of the Diva half of Zoya's 2012 Fall collection. Then I added a coat of Seche Vite and let it dry real quick so I could stamp. My stamping color is China Glaze Passion.
Something that hasn't happened to me until now, is my polish dragging when I top coat it! The stripes were so clean and neat when I took the tape off, and I thought I let it dry long enough, but when I applied the top coat Elisa smeared on every nail! If you know how time consuming striping is you can feel my frustration! In any case, I like this design in these photos, but I'm not loving it in real life. It looks kind of ... dirty? I think a brighter red, a greener green, more dry time, wider stripes and silver stamps would've improved on this design! Yes? No?
You guys going to try something like this?? Holla ya'll!
