31DC - Day 12 - Stripes

Hi Goddesses

How are we doing, are you enjoying the 31 Day ride ?  As I'm typing this, I only have about 7 manis left to do.  I had a major inspiration-deficit yesterday, but I *think* I know what I'm doing for the remaining challenges.  Which I haven't shown you for a long time - so here's the graphic.

So, I really pushed the boat out for this one.  This is stripes .... but with a gradient.  AND with my new OPI Germanys.  Uh huh.  Clever Crumpet :)

So, which polishes do we have -
Thumb = Suzi and The 7 Dusseldorfs
Index = Unfor-Greta-bly Blue
Middle - Don't Talk Bach To Me
Ring - Berlin There Done That
Pinkie - Deutsch You Want Me Baby

I am really happy with this overall - I'm surprised it has so much of a beachy / nautical look - but I am disappointed the middle stripe isn't better.  I like how the bottom one looks like chalk on a blackboard, but the middle one isn't different enough to the top one for my liking.  Oh well, better look next time!

This may look complex, but it really isn't.  If you can apply tape and do a tape mani, you can do this.  Literally the only difference is that you are sponging polish rather than applying it with a brush.

Because of the lightness of the sponging, there was no issue with the polish sticking the tape to my nail, so no issues when it was time to remove the tape.

Et volia!  See you tomorrow.  And the next day.  And the next day.  And the day after that.  And -

Enough.  Enjoy xx :)
