Okay, so don't ask me what I'm doing to earn them, I just remembered that phrase and used it. Hee. So, anyway, today's challenge post involved stripes, and I had a blast with it. Let's take a peek.
I thought it would be fun to do them skittle-y.
So, I started with a good base in a variety of colors that could be like ornaments.
I let that dry and get all shiny while I did some other things, and it looked like this.
Then I used tape strips the length of my nails, and painted the metallic colors I'd chosen over them. Peel the tape off and YAY STRIPES!
I really like the way this one turned out. I might have to do some more of these sometime.
The red and gold would make a fantastic Christmas mani if I didn't already have too many ideas to get in before the holiday is upon us.
So, how excited are you for the holiday weekend? I'll try to make sure I still get posts in, and maybe slide some extras in on you as well.
