First, thank you to everyone who commented, emailed, tweeted in response to the post about my baby Loki. I can’t tell you how much it means to me. I’m still reading through everything, it’s hard to do all at once, and responding but the support is amazing.
That being said, it’s #ManiMonday and when I shared the Essie Fall 2014 collection, I mentioned how I thought Take It Outside would make a great nail art base and that I wanted to pair it with Style Cartel and Fall In Line. So today, I pulled out the straight Nail Vinyls I purchased, but haven’t used yet, and The Perfect Cover Up for a fall striped look.
Essie Fall 2014 Striped Nail Art
While this look is very simple to create, the main ingredient is patience. The hardest part of working with tape or Nail Vinyls is waiting for the base color to dry. And due to the amount of times I’ve had to start a nail over because I was an eager beaver, I let Take It Outside sit for an hour before applying the tape.
That ended up being perfect as I was able to pull up and reset the Nail Vinyls with no issue. Using multiple sizes of straight Nail Vinyls I applied Fall In Line, Style Cartel and The Perfect Cover Up with the bottle brush, wiped really well, swiping from side to side. I LOVE how they look together!
