Striping tape is the oh-so-obvious choice for Day 12 of the Challenge but it's a classic and I just couldn't resist. This is another technique that I went through a huge 'phase' with a few years ago and I haven't really revisited it properly since last year's challenge.


I didn't go in to this with a plan - just my striping tape and tweezers in hand. I took it one nail at a time and just went with my instincts, trying to make sure no two nails looked the same. I really love this look and especially how the colours work together. This base colour (Sally Hansen Ion) is what I would describe as a white-greige but I think it really takes on the tone of the purple in this close proximity.

For the Nails

My base colour is Sally Hansen Ion and I topped that with a thin coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl to dry it fast and hard.

On top of that, I laid out my patterns using some White Striping Tape. I painted over the tape one nail at a time with NYC Lavender Blossom and removed the tape immediately.

It's all finished with two more coats of HK Girl to smooth things over.
