Just a little nail art for you today, based on a cute stripey pattern I saw on Fairly Charming's blog.
I started out with a Julep Joanna, a frosty, icy blue. I like using these light, fairly unobtrusive colors for the base of a nail art instead of all the bare nails or sheer pinks I see so often. I have way too many polishes to be going naked for all of these manicures.
These are probably the messiest stripes I've ever published on my blog. I seem to have a problem replicating the shape of the original nail art. Time to break out the compass, or something. What a mess. But the polish is pretty - a coral from Deborah Lippmann called Girls Just Want To Have Fun.
From coral to radiant orchid with Nails Inc Devonshire Row. I must have been sorting through my mini bottles - two in a row? Weird.
When you want pseudo jeans, try jeggings. Or Ginger + Liz Jeggings, which fit me much better.
I like how the other colors are sandwiched between different shades of blue.
Even though these are mostly trendy colors, this look feels somehow dated. Doesn't it kinda look retro?

Are you more likely to do adventurous nail/makeup/fashion looks on the weekend, or do the opposite and go as nekkid as you possibly can? I'll chill out with a bare face when we're at home, but I love playing with nail art on lazy days.
