The Beauty Buffs - Stripes



     Woo! I'm overloading all of you with posts this last week. I hope you've been able to keep up! Today, I have another Beauty Buffs theme to share: STRIPES. I love stripes! I wear them often. Yes, even horizontal stripes. I'm fat and do what I want. I can rock anything and everything. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise! 

    Now, back to the post at hand. Ha. Get it? That was a terrible pun and I'm sorry. For all the details on this look and a link up for the other Beauty Buffs, keep on reading.











Products Used

black rhinestones
Nail Vinyls single chevron decals
Rica Whiteout
Rica Blackout
China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise
Rica Glossy Glam
Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Lick-O-Rich
tweezers (not pictured)
striper nail art brush (not pictured)










    After I removed the decals and saw that my lines weren't as crisp as I was hoping for, I added the turquoise stripes on each side of the black. That also didn't turn out perfectly, but I think it still looks nice. The top coat definitely made it look more cohesive. 











    Turned Up Turquoise is one of my favorite polishes. I think China Glaze is highly underrated. They have a lot of gems hidden in their line. This is a go to pedicure color for me. 

     The textured polish and rhinestone add some fun dimension to an otherwise flat manicure. 












    As with most manicures, the flaws aren't as easily seen when viewed at a distance. This picture makes it look so much better, right? Just humor me, please.
