Oh Mon Dieu! 31 Day Challenge Day 11 - Stripes

Thursday, July 11, 2013

Good morning! Weather is getting more cooler again which is nice. I have about a month and a half left until I go back to college. Its a different college from the last one I went to so its like being the new girl all over again. I've already registered in my courses so all I need to do is pay the tuition fee and get my books. Anyways, let's see what I have for the Oh Mon Dieu! It’s the Rather Awesome 31 Day Challenge today.

For day 11, the theme is stripes. I got some stripping tape off ebay a while back but haven't gotten a chance to test them out. What better way to do so than to make some stripes. Let's see how I did.

Stripes

I started with Sally Hansen White On as my base color. To speed up the drying time, I applied a coat of Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. Then I took some striping tape to make some horizontal stripes on my nails. Taking Essie Mojito Madness, I applied that on top. While it was still wet, I quickly peeled off the striping tape to reveal stripes on my nails. Lastly, I applied my Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.

This was actually pretty hard to do. It took me a while to place the striping tape exacting how I wanted it on the nails but the result was perfect stripes. I love how these turned out even though it was a bit time consuming and the color applied a bit patchy. What do you think of my stripe manicure?

    1. Thank you Gosia! :) Well, I finished my business program and graduated with a diploma from my previous school. I'm unsure on what I want to do so I'm going back to college and doing another program that this school offers that my previous one doesn't.

  6. I love striping manicures! And this one is no exception! The colors look great together! I find it easier to handle the striping tape using a pair of tweezers instead of using my fingers. Have you tried that?

    1. Thank you for the advice! Yeah, I was using my fingers so it was a struggle. I'll try tweezers then to see if that works better for me. Thanks! :)
