Pink & Silver Striped Nails

There are 2 types of nail "art" that I will do: polka dots and stripes.  That's about as far as I usually go.  I was feeling stripey today!

My base color is Julep Penelope, a creamy pink that applies so smooth and covers completely in 2 layers:


Then I took a skinny striping brush and dipped it into Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear "Celeb City", a sparkly silver.  I placed the brush on one end and moved my nail (not the brush) to finish out the line.  I found this to be easier.  (There will be a little cleanup necessary, but it is minimal):





Pink & gray together are one of my most favorite color combos.   I am always looking for ways to wear more than one polish at a time (the reason I do so many "layered" manicures), and I love using these 2 together like this.  What do you think?  Do you have any other color combo recommendations?

  1. They look cool. I think I'll try that striping technique next time I'm in a stripy mood, thanks. :)

  2. What a beautiful color. I'm amazed that it only takes two coats! I just signed up for the Julep Maven box and I think I'm scheduled to get this color in my first one.

  3. Penelope is so pretty! I'd have thought that'd be a sheer color. Hmmm, may have to see if it shows up in any future boxes. The silver glitter stripes are the perfect accent so such a soft pink, too.
