31DC2016 Day 12: Stripes

Painted Fingertips | Stripes over Darling Diva Fat Gandolf for the #31DC2016

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the 31 Day Challenge is stripes. Of course, I continued with my personal freehand challenge and did some freehand stripes. Painted Fingertips | Stripes over Darling Diva Fat Gandolf for the #31DC2016

I started with a base of Darling Diva Fat Gandolf, a stunning multichrome. On top of that, I freehanded a stripy pattern using white acrylic paint. Painted Fingertips | Stripes over Darling Diva Fat Gandolf for the #31DC2016

Look how pretty the multichrome is around the edges of my nails! The striped pattern reminds me a little of a spiderweb, which wasn’t intentional, but I like it nonetheless. Painted Fingertips | Stripes over Darling Diva Fat Gandolf for the #31DC2016

I guess the macro highlights my less-than-perfect stripes, but they looked pretty cool on my nails and the base polish is gorgeous.

In previous years, I’ve done a striped gradient and a horizontal striped look. This was the first time I went with stripes in multiple directions, and I like the effect.

    What a lovely polish. I think hand painted things have their own charm. Prolly just as well
