Purple glitter striped manicure

I had to change my mani after all the tipwear from the Anna Sui in my last post but I didn't know what to do so I decided to go for something simple. I loved the striped glitter design I did on my pinky for my NYE manicure in pink so I decided to do a full manicure using the design but this time in purple. It’s a very easy design - a base of purple and then stripes in white and purple glitter!

I started off with a base of Essence No More Drama which I received last year in my swap with Tina from Fleur's nails&stuff. I have so many untrieds in my collection I’m trying my best to try them all! No More Drama is a pale lavender purple polish. I’ve seen many swatches of this and I really liked the colour however on me I found the colour a little dusty for my liking. Brush was great to use but I found the formula wasn’t as easy to use as other Essence polishes. Below is 2 coats without topcoat.

I then used Kiss nail art striper in white to draw vertical lines. I then filled it the gaps with CM nail art striper in purple glitter.

I actually have pyjamas that are a very similar colour and have white stripes (no glitter though unfortunately) so it matched lol. My sister said my mani reminded her of hard boiled sweets which made me crave them =p

What do you think? Thanks for looking!

  6. I love this mani. It is so cute and looks so complicated but you make it sound simple to perform. I'm going to have to steal your idea and see if I can do something similar. Happy Day

  7. Lovely babe, lol your sis is right! They remind me of rock candy :) I really do like this as it seems like something I can do! Just need to get hold of some pens, I've actually heard that thin marker pens or even liquid eyeliner can be used as well?

    @Rachel Marie: I must have been concentrating really hard when I was doing this mani because I hardly ever do such straight lines! Now that you mention it, it reminds me of it too hehe.

  18. @Chris: Awwww thank you Chris =) It's very easy to do! I hope you try it too, do post your mani when you do!

    @Aysh: Yep you can use marker pens, just make sure you use it over a base colour so it doesn't stain your nails! I don't have any of the pens as I use a striper polish.

    @Oreleona: I do like their polishes! I just wish they stocked them in Aus =( Thank you so much for the award!
