Arden: I pinned this a few weeks ago, and finally just got the chance to try it!
|Pic from http://loveit.com/loves/P0BKYawjC2B_9LwDXfvH7T- As always, if you know its original creator, please let me know!|
Instead of white and light blue, I decided to move everything down a shade and do light blue and dark blue. For my light blue, I used my new Essie Bikini So Teeny.
|Not sure how I didn't notice that hair on my nails when I took all these pictures....|
Aside: In the bottle, Bikini So Teeny looks like it has a little bit of shimmer (see photo below). But on the nail, you really can't see the shimmer at all.
To make this design, I placed a piece of tape diagonally across each nail. I then cut small strips of tape up and placed them vertically on the tips of my nails. (My original plan was to use striping tape, but I decided I wanted wider stripes than that.)
I painted the exposed areas Essie Midnight Cami...
... and then immediately used tweezers to slowly remove the small strips of tape.
Finished result! Voila!
I really liked these diagonal half stripes, and considered stopping here, but we do have a Color Club silver striper polish, so I decided I might as well use it!
What do you think? Do you like it better with the silver stripe or not? Let us know in the comments!
Also, if you have a nail design you've seen on Pinterest you'd like me to try out and blog about, post it in the comments or email it to us at casadepolish [at] gmail.com! I'm always looking for new Pinterest ideas!
