I enjoyed a long weekend away with hubby this weekend. My nails for this break were multi coloured stripes on left hand and dots on right hand.
I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls for my off white base. This proved to be ideal on the dotty hand as the appearance of tip wear was minimal, I have a full week away at the end of October and am thinking this will be the best type of mani to last a week without terrible tip wear showing.
My stripes and dots were:
Red a-england Perceval
Blue OPI Unfor-Greta-bly Blue
Green Barry M British Racing Green
Purple W7 Purple Paradise
Here's the just done pics, so no clean up. The accent nail on the right hand was unplanned and started off as a laser stripe, but then I tested my striping brushes. I didn't have time to remove it so just had to roll with it. I also had a little bit of top coat drag on the dots, but as I had to pack I just left it and ignored this!
And here is same mani after 5 days of wear!
Later last night I had to chop my nails right back, the tip of my index finger on right hand chipped horribly and would have carried on peeling if I hadn't just got the nail clippers out and cut it off. Luckily my nails grow so quickly that they won't remain super nubs for long!
