Stripe tape is fun!

Hey my favorite people ever! <3
So I got all inspired by some amazing nails I found...I believe it was Chalkboard Nails. Yeah, we'll go with that!

Anyway, I wanted to do a rainbow, but what rushed out the door when picking colors, so I brought 4 lovely Zoyas with me instead!

Cut to the chase:

We've got Zoya Avery, Megan, Caitlin, and Mira!

Avery is the super awesome nude from the feel collection. After putting the stripes on i realized I should have went with a super pale grey or white, but eh, still like it!
Megan is also from Feel. Its a nice purpley grey color. Love it!!! Caitlin is more blue than purple, but still fit into the scheme pretty well. And Mira...LOVE Mira! It's the perfect purple...I think I say that about all of the purples I use, though...

Horizontal stripes may have been a bad idea after all. Short nails should be made to look longer with vertical stripes, so this just made them look squat and fat. Boo. Oh well!
Avery was PERFECT for my nails by itself...shoulda' taken a pic, but was away from camera when I did this; I'll get a swatch of it later. It made my nails look a perfect length, even though I think they are a bit short still!

For this I used striper tape. I will get a tutorial of that up soon, I should hope. Again, wasn't able to do any pics beforehand. =(

I will soon do my rainbow....Do not fret! =D

PS: Took pics after a day of hooping. Please excuse!

Tutorial here!
