Candy Striped

Hi everyone!  Happy Christmas Eve!!  My little boys go crazy for candy canes every year, and their favorites are all of the funky colored ones.  So, I thought I'd create my own fun skittle candy striped mani!


I started off with two coats of, from thumb to pinky, Zoya Shelby, Pop Nail Glam Tangerine Taste, Essie First Timer, China Glaze For Audrey, and Lime Crime Lavendairy.  I followed with one coat of SV.


I really wanted the striped to look a little random, so I focused on cutting my scotch tape strips in different sizes.


Once my tape was in place, I added one coat over each nail and removed the tape immediately.  


The topper shades are, from thumb to pinky, Lime Crime Parfait Day, Lime Crime Peaches ♥ Cream, Essie Navigate Her, Lime Crime Once in a Blue Mousse, and Essie Nice is Nice.  I finished with one coat of SV.


I had a lot of fun creating this, and I love the end result.  It was kind of liberating to not want perfectly sized stripes for a change!


I think my favorite combo of all is my index finger, which was kind of surprising!  I love the way these two soft orange shades work together!
I hope you all enjoyed!  Have a Merry Christmas!
Happy Painting!




Colors: Zoya Shelby, Pop Nail Glam Tangerine Taste, Essie First Timer, China Glaze For Audrey, Lime Crime Lavendairy, Lime Crime Parfait Day, Lime Crime Peaches ♥ Cream, Essie Navigate Her, Lime Crime Once in a Blue Mousse, Essie Nice is Nice

  4. I like how this manicure isn't your typical Christmas offering of red and white candy canes. Still great fun though xx
