NOTD: Candy Stripes!

My nails aren't the longest, I've bitten them since I can remember.
But I plucked up the courage to show you them, even though I hate how short they are!

I did a cute candy striped pattern on them. I've done similar before with navy and white and also black and white, but today I wanted something more spring like.

First I painted 3 layers of Next Just Pink in ----. I had to build up the colour as I think this was from a french manicure set, so the pink was quite translucent. However I wanted it to be very opaque. 

I then used L.A Colors Art Deco Nail Art Laquer to paint the stripes. I think I got this from Boyes for just £1 and it's actually really great! I am hoping to buy more colours so I can do different stripes and 'designs'. 

 It has a really thin brush which works really well when drawing the stripes on!

Just a quick post, so hope you enjoyed :)


  1. I can't believe the white is from Boyes - there's one next to my work, I'll definitely have to pop in and have a look for this on my lunch tomorrow.


    1. Awh you should! It's amazing what you can find in good old Boyes!

  2. ooh this cool!! (: if you use pink it'll be perfect for valentines day
