#31DC2013 – Stripes

Please note that I no longer recommend Bondi New York as a company. For a full explanation, please see this post.


So the theory behind this mani is quite simple, it’s just a red base colour with striping tape masking as I applied my black leather effect polish.

Thing is, after the first 3 nails, I remembered why I usually freehand my stripes with a brush! What a pain. Still, it looks pretty cool. And on that note, boys have really funny taste in nails; I can do the most complex mani in the world, and the one my bloke compliments me on is the one with just a few strips of tape… Go figure!

The Base colour is Strawberry Fields by Bondi New York. The leather effect is Nails Inc in Noho.

    That Nails Inc finish really does look like leather, it’s amazing! Unlike that should-have-been-rejected Maybelline “Antique Leather” bollocks. May need to invest in a bottle.
    Oh hey, look – I’ve already got a Sephora tab open on my browser!

    Don’t you hate that! I do something intricate and don’t receive any compliments ( not that I am fishing for any), but the simplest thing like color and gems or stripes loads of compliments. I really like the color combo of this mani

  5. My favorite design you’ve done so far- so professional looking!
