Ooh Stripey....

Whilst browsing the net for some nail art inspiration, I came across some rather retro looking stripey nail action. Of course I gave it ago, even if its not the best practice makes perfect.

My base colour is the H&M polish from my previous post. Then you simply paint the white where you want it, followed by the black lines and your done.

Hope I have inspired a few nail art lovers out there....

Tip: For those that don't own a black nail art pen, just use a black liquid eyeliner, it works just as well.
