So after my small success with stripes last week, I felt compelled to just go all stripy! So here is a quick post with my results to date.
These are not perfect by any means but I’m excited enough to share my progress and the photos are a bit shit. sorry.
First up is wide stripes – I was inspired by the stripes The Nailasaurus did for blog fest which were amazing!
I used Zoya Jacqueline and Kiko 314 Cyclamen here and a coat of SV.
Here I just went with striping tape and Sellotape. What I really want now is some of those craft scissors that cut wavy and crinkle lines 🙂 I used Barry M Dragon fruit and Guava. I could only do Dragon Fruit on the base as it was so sheer initially. I think if doing a skittle if you get 2 shades (or as many as you like really) that are both opaque, you can alternate better. Maybe? I’m a striping newbie so any tips and hints appreciated.
So now I’m happier with striping, what’s next – Gradients 🙂
