This was inspired by The Dalai Lama's Nails after seeing her stripey nails post. She actually did a video tutorial for it too called stripey tutorial. I've been really into using the fan brush for nail art designs so after seeing her tutorial, I was motivated to try this design out. This was my first time trying a matte top coat on my nails and I like the result a lot.
I started with Spoiled by Wet n' Wild Plastic Flamingo. Taking Essence Break Through, I took a fan brush to apply the color horizontally and then vertically on the nails. I drew two crooked horizontal and vertical lines on the nail tips with Born Pretty Store Sweet Color Black Nail Art Liner. Use coupon code YCL91 for 10% off your entire order. I applied Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat and then NYC Matte Me Crazy Mattifying Top Coat.
This didn't turn out as good as the original but I like the overall look regardless. Sad that the purple shade didn't really show up that well against the pink and that I smudged the black lines when I was applying top coat. What do you think of this stripey manicure?
