Stripey accents


Hello everyone :) I hope you guys had a nice weekend like I did, we had some late summer weather the last couple of days and I enjoyed it very much.
For this post I have stripey accents to share with you. I'm wearing one of my latest purchases, China Glaze Concrete Catwalk. I love the dark shade of grey and the polish applies like butter, just two smooth coats and you're done. Tonight I added the red, stripey accents, using tape and P2's Fever, I love this polish too! It's a deep, shimmery red, very glamorous and I love how it pops against Concrete Catwalk. Thanks for stopping by and have a great night!

  25. Whoa, so many comments! Thank you guys so much, you're truly amazing.

    #Elzedge: First I cut off a piece of the tape roll, which I then lay flat on one scissorblade, that way it will automatically be cut straight ;-) I am considering to make video tutorials in the future, however I'm really busy at the moment, so it might take a while before that moment comes.

    @Irena B: I've just swatched it on a nail wheel for ya :D I'll put in on my Flickr right away and send you a message. Hope you're gonna like it, because it's so beautiful :)

    @Pretty Lil' Things: Thanks for the award, girl! I'm flattered :)

  27. Did you pain your nails red first and then put stripes on top and then gray?

    ReplyDelete
  28. @Sara: Thank you!

    @Susanna: First the grey, then the red ;-)
