Multi-coloured Stripes with Picture Polish

The end of another weekend - where did it go? I was so busy I didn't even get to paint my nails this weekend. I wore the same mani that I painted on my nails on Thursday night all weekend!  Luckily I still have one or two manis stored up ready to post, like this one that I wore last weekend.

This is just a simple tape mani, but the overall effect was really striking.  I started with a bright silver base - I used a custom made polish made with silver plated flakes - think Lacquistry Amazeballs, but silver not gold.  I then taped off the lines and applied stripes of various Picture Polish shades.  I used Fairy Gloss, Swagger, Chillax, Totes and Mellow Yellow.  I actually mixed a tiny bit of Ulta3 Honolulu onto a palaette with Mellow Yellow to get a better colour match for the yellow polish with the others.

Thanks for stopping by. I better go paint my nails now!
