Hello lovelies… it’s been a moment!
Today I’ve got some fun abstract stripes to share with you. This is one of my favourite easy designs to do when I’m struggling with inspiration. I recently picked up a few new polishes from Icing so I decided to grab them as the main polishes of choice. If you’ve been around this blog a while, you know that while I adore my big brands, there is something wonderful about polishes from non-cosmetic brands–stores like Ardene, Claires, Icing & H&M have some serious awesome polishes with awesome formulas! & even more awesome — they’re super affordable! So now that I’m back to work, I’ve been adding a lot more shades to my collection.
So I thought why not create a design using them as my feature shades!
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
- Base Coat: Nailtek 2
- Top Coat: Essie Speed Setter
- Icing 60858 Light Blue Shimmer
- Icing Matte Effect 85900
- Art Club Nail Art Striper in Blue Paisley
- Quo by Orly Nail Art Striper in white
- Quo by Orly Nail Art Striper in black
I just love how this design turned out. I wore these to work & got quite a few compliments on them! I feel like I know a design turned out well if random strangers are complimenting them (&asking if I did them myself!) That’s always a huge compliment to me!
Also this blue shade is definitely fitting in with the rainy weather outside. Blue abstract stripes always give me water vibes.
