Good morning everyone! It’s Wednesday, thank goodness, and it’s my little girl’s 7th birthday today. Unfortunately, she’s sick with a bad cold and won’t be able to have too much fun today. 😦
I have a fun manicure today, but it was kind of a pain in the butt to do! I started off with a base of OPI Love.Angel.Music.Baby and then used striping tape and Wet n Wild Who Is Ultra Violet to create the pattern of gingham check.
The thing about this mani is that you have to use an opposing color that is sheer, so that when the lines cross, they are noticeably darker than the lines themselves. Who Is Ultra Violet was great for this but also a bit hard to control (for me).
Isn’t this fun? I wore this for two days and received so many compliments! What do you think of the manicure?
Until the next time,

Well, my first try wasn’t so great. 😛 🙂 Thank you!
You make this looks so easy 🙂 I’d be afraid of all those lines! But you pulled it off brilliantly! Beautiful as always 🙂
Thanks so much! 🙂
These look so beautiful and efortless, but I know how much work went into it. That must have been a ton of work, doing all those lines!
