Swirls on the Diagonal

My sister’s friend presented me with a challenge: she wanted pink and white, suitable for work, with striping tape. She liked the idea of a diagonal mani, and I put together how it would work! This also gave me the chance to use one of my new favorite stamps, BM-201.

This mani started with a white base, followed by stamping in coral and then adding a coral diagonal. I cleaned up the (not exactly straight) line by adding striping tape over it, and then finished with top coat.

Unfortunately, this mani did not last terribly long, as my sister’s friend joined us for crab dinner and scraped off quite a bit of polish when trying to pry open crab legs! C’est la vie. At least I got photos :-p

I don’t know if this counts at 100% work-appropriate (working in lab means I can wear whatever I want on my nails!) but it is pink and white, and at least cute and not terribly glittery!

  1. It’s lovely. I can pretty much wear anything on my nails also, as long as it doesn’t start disturbing (3D and length) me in lab work or on the field 😀 So it’s definitely work appropriate!

    • hahahah! Me too, its the wonder of being a graduate student. I do feel bad though when friends as me to do their nails with the constraints “work friendly.” I have too many bright happy colors for traditional work friendly manicures!
