Grurple Stripes

Purple! I have had the concept for this design sitting in my to-do nail art pinterest account for months and months, and decided that tonight was the night to try it! I think it came out well, despite hitting a few road bumps 😀


So the inspiration came from Brit Nails. I have no idea how she did these nails, because the blog post doesn’t say! I thus tried my own idea first, and had to rescue my own art.


I started by painting my nails white, and then adding striping tape to block off some of the white. I tried to do the smush-on-polish with a stamper, but it went everywhere and the white still peeked through, so I just went ahead and did some saran wrapping with two shade of purple and two shades of grey. The result came out nice, but it was frustrating in the middle!


~ White: Sinful Colors – Snow me White
~ Light purple: Sally Hansen – Lacey Lilac
~ Purple: Zoya – Malia
~ Light grey: Wet n’ Wild – Sidewalkers
~ Grey: Sinful Colors – Muse


Unfortunately, adding top coat caused the purple to smudge over the white (as expected, unfortunately) since I haven’t been able to find a cheap non-smuding polish since they discontinued my old top coat. Hope you enjoyed!
