Hello lovelies & happy Thursday! Hope everyone is having the loveliest of weeks! Today I’ve got some brand new nail art to share with you, featuring an easy technique I love to do: abstract stripes. I’ve been doing some version of this look for a couple of years now, & I think they’re such a great way to jazz up your nails — they’re also relatively easy & hard to mess up, & who doesn’t love that!
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
- Base Coat: Essie Treat Love & Color Gloss Fit (clear)
- Base Coat: OPI Nail Envy
- Top Coat: Essie Speed Setter
- Quo by ORLY Breathable Kiss Me, I’m Kind
- Wrenn Polish Intoxicated
- Revlon Iconic
- Kiss Products Nail Art Striper in Black
- Kiss Products Nail Art Striper in White
First off, check out that scattered holo because it’s absolutely amazing. If you missed my earlier Swatch Sunday post on it, Intoxicated is one of the two new holographic nail polishes that Wrenn Polish released recently. It’s STUNNING. Second I’m kind of obsessed with this grey by Revlon — Iconic. I recently picked it up at my local Lawton’s for only 99 cents. It really compliments this dark purple polish & just goes so well together.
& I don’t know why, but greys are just a favourite for me this time of year (with the exception of early February for Valentine’s Day).
I feel myself digging into my past posts for inspiration lately. The (nail art) nostalgia is real. But maybe Paris Fashion week & the Oscars will give me some new nail art inspiration & inspire some fun new looks.
What do you think about these abstract stripes? What nail art trends are you excited about? Let me know!
