Today I’ve got some abstract stripes to share with you featuring another untried polish from the stash! I’m ashamed to admit I have way too many untried polishes, so I’m trying really hard to pull them out & actually wear them. Except it’s me, & I just end up going out & buying a new one that then adds to the collection haha. 🤦🏻♀️
Problem? I don’t have a nail polish problem.
But today I’m wearing Deborah Lippmann She Drives Me Crazy which is a pretty jade green shade which my Mom picked up for me at Marshall’s. The colour is obviously gorgeous, but I felt like it definitely needed something added, so I came up with these abstract stripes over top.
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
- Base Coat: L’Oréal All in One
- Top Coat: Essie Speed Setter
- Deborah Lippmann She Drives Me Crazy
- Essie Mint Candy Apple
- Kiss Products Nail Art Striper in White
- Kiss Products Nail Art Striper in Black
- Quo by ORLY Nail Art Striper in Gold
This design never gets old to me. It’s like floral or polka dots–easy to pull out when I’m too tired to think about what to do on my nails. It’s all about the colour palate. You have to make sure your secondary colour (in this case Essie Mint Candy Apple) falls within the same colour family as your base for the stripes to really just look awesome together. Also I need to stop forgetting to do a tutorial for this design because I keep promising one. Blame it on the fact I do my nails on the couch in my pjs (bottle balanced between my knees) & not at a table like a normal person haha. But now that I have this fancy new iPhone, maybe I’ll finally be able to film a long promised tutorial. Crazier things have happened!
Am I the only person who buys nail polish then proceeds to forget to wear it? What polishes do you currently have waiting to be worn?
I recently went through & reorganized my stash so I’m really trying to make a point to pull out those forgotten shades that I forgot I owned! Hopefully I’ll be able to incorporate more into my blog posts before I end up buying more!
