31 Day Challenge - Day 12: Stripes

It's the weekend, yay!  I'm back in Swansea this weekend for my cousin's wedding.  I'm writing this on Thursday night, so I'll let you know how my attempts at travelling around London to get here went!

Today's challenge theme is stripes.  I decided to recreate an old manicure that I did, hopefully with improved skill and technique...  I went with a nautical theme.

I used a base of Barry M Matt White, and then used OPI Chick Flick Cherry and China Glaze Man Hunt.  I used striping tape for my lines - I'm getting a little better at all this taping business, but as you can see, I've still got a ways to go!

Here's the old manicure that I based this design on.  This is from...erm...sometime between October and February...

What do you reckon?  Do you prefer the old or the new one?


  1. I really dig both of these but the new one has more blue, which is my fave polish color. I adore this mani, BTW. I really want to try this!

  2. I love the old colours, but the new techniques.

  3. The old way is good but the new way has some serious class!

  4. So cute!! I love nautical nails. I actually like them both, so I'm no help at all!!

  5. We love your designs and are seeking a talented nail art technician with beautiful hands, to star in our nail art dvds.
