Nail Art: Vertical Stripe Nails

Vertical Stripe Nails Nail Art SwatchesDo you ever have the itch to do nail art, but you can’t think of a design? It happened to me a couple of days ago.

I didn’t want to do something intricate due to time constraints, and I wasn’t up for dealing with the messiness of nail stamping.

Theseย Vertical Stripe Nailsย helped satisfy the craving for nail art without taking up much time or concentration.

Ever since doing Jack Skellington nail art, I knew that I’d have to do a manicure with vertical stripes on all the nails because I think it’s a really fun look.

(It’s a bonus that it’s also incredibly easy to do! It’s okay if all the lines aren’t perfectly straight or of the same thickness. It puts your signature on the manicure!)

Here I used two shades from the Nicole by OPI Selena Gomez Collection coming out in January 2013 – Hit the Lights (yellow) and Spring Break (pink).

This manicure is a reminder to be true to yourself and to always show your stripes! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I didn’t bother doing a step-by-step tutorial for this because it’s very intuitive. Just paint your nails with alternating colours. Wait a few minutes before painting the black stripes, so you don’t end up dragging the base polish.

Would you wear vertical stripes on your nails? What nail-art design do you tend to do when you don’t have time for something intricate?

      Hey Charlotte!

      It would also be neat to do all different rainbow colours as the base shades with black or white stripes. Hmm! Hope someone will try it and share photos with me. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’d love to see how it turns out.

      Hey Jenn!

      There’s definitely a great variety of shades in the Selena Gomez Collection. My only major criticism (which should come as no surprise…) is that there should be a greeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen! ๐Ÿ˜‰
