This manicure comes from a surprising place…Nail It! Magazine! My nails were published in one of the earliest editions of the magazine, and my wonderful boyfriend went hunting to buy me a copy! While browsing, I found the design you see here in various shades of blue. It has taken me 6 months to grow my nails long enough (without breaking) to feel like I can do justice to this design!
It is actually very simple. Base color, tape and striping tape, and voila! You don’t even need a special brush…I just used the polish brush for the lines (although I almost went over the tape lines on my pinky). I had thought this would be time consuming, but it was very simple!
- Light purple: Sally Hansen – Lacy Lilac
- Medium light purple: L’oreal – Royalty Reinvented
- Purple: Zoya – Malia
- Medium dark purple: Sinful Colors – Fig
- Dark purple: Station – Happy Wine-y People
For something so simple, this came out really well! Enjoy!
