Simple Vertical Stripes [Nail Art]

I realize I don't do enough nail art, so I'm going to try and attempt at least one nail art-ish thing per month from now on!  Mostly, I just like wearing polish by itself, to appreciate it.  Then, usually, if I get bored, I'll throw on an accent nail or two to keep things interesting.

This manicure is just simple messy vertical stripes, as you can see. It was my first attempt doing stripes like this, and was done without guides or nail tape.  They don't look great in photos, but looked okay in real life.  Funny how that works.

The base color....I'm not sure what it is, to be honest.  I did these a month or two ago.  It might be Zoya- Wednesday, or something similar- I'm not sure.

The white stripes were done with a nail art striper: the white one that Sinful Colors makes, to be more specific. It has quite a thick brush for striper, so my stripes turned out pretty thick.  I ended up liking it though.


  1. Very cute:) It actually reminds me of when you squeeze tooth paste out of the tube...the ones with the gel and the paste ;)
