Beachy Stripes

Well, today is the last day of my vacation :( When I get home I'll post some pics and tell you guys about it more! For today I have another mani using my striping tape:

The two polishes I used were Nicole by OPI Nothing Kim-pares to Blue and Others Pale by Kim-parison.

For the base I did three coats of each color!

These two polishes are just beautiful. Nothing Kim-pares to Blue is a light, slightly dusty blue, with silver shimmer. Others Pale by Kim-parison is a soft egg-shell white, its not a harsh in your face white.

Then I taped off the stripes that I wanted to show up white...

and painted a thick coat of blue over it and removed the tape!

Here's the little strips after I peeled them off

 The final product!! This is my right hand

and here's my left hand!

A pile of shells on the beach that I decided would be pretty to use as a background :)

I am so obsessed with using this striping tape right now. It's so easy to use and I love how crisp it makes my lines!! Can't wait to do even more designs with them.


  1. I hope you had a nice vacation :)
    I love your stripes and the colors used! The picture with the shells are awesome!

    1. I am so sorry that it was taken me so long to reply! Somehow I never saw your comment :( Anyways, I remove the tape right after I apply the polish over top!
