Glossy stripes on matte

I’ve been wanting to do a manicure that was matte, but not just all matte. I saw a picture on pinterest where the nails were painted all matte grey, and I really liked the look of that. But since I’ve been ill for a week and going on, I haven’t done much with my nails, leaving them bare or with just a simple, light color.Ā IMG_13051 IMG_13141

It’s funny how my left hand is much more used to posing than my right hand lol.

Materials:

Essie – Help me grow (base coat)

Essie – the perfect cover up (grey)

Seche Vite (top coat)

OPI – matte top coat

Striping tape

    Love the colour, and the stripes really complement the entire design

    These are fab! Just out of interest, how long do you wait between painting your nail and then putting the striping tape on them? I never seem to get it right.

      I put top coat on in between and then wait for that to dry šŸ™‚ that dries much faster and if you accidentally pull off some color it will just be the clear top coat šŸ™‚

    Cool design šŸ˜€ Now i have to buy a mate colour nail polish xD But i have a question, do you use regular tape and cut it the way you like it or do you have a special method for it? šŸ˜€
