|OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls|
I used three Misa Stripers for my design, and I cannot imagine using any other brand now. These ones are so pigmented and apparently I can manage to work with them without messing up my nails so I like them a lot.
The colours I used were 01. Crazy For Banana (the yellow one of course), 11. Relax Don't Do It (the purple), and 12. Pink Heart (the pink).
As a base colour I used one from the OPI Spiderman set, called My Boyfriend Scales Walls. This polish is really cool since it is kind of white and kind of grey. It even has a hint of blue to it in some lights. It reminds me of clouds on a rainy day. I wore it on its own for a day before adding the colours to it this morning. The photo of it is two coats of the colour.
I started off adding pink stripes in a few directions, some straight and some on an angle. I was going to overlap my stripes but changed my mind last minute so they don't touch each other. I think I like this better than if they were to cross over since it allows the base colour to show through.

I have realized in these photos the blue and grey tints to My Boyfriend Scales Walls is totally evident. Sometimes in real life it didn't show but in both of these images it definitely does. I like that this polish isn't stark white since I am not too sure I could pull that off. This softens it a tiny bit and adds a little extra interest.
Overall this is a pretty simple look but I really like it. Its easy and I don't need to have any artistic skills. I will definitely be doing something like this again with other colour combinations. I seem to be work well with striping brushes so I need to find some more nail art ideas that only require those.
So there you have it - my Friday fingertips! I am off to my cottage for a family fun weekend, and I hope all of you have some great plans as well!
Thanks for reading!
