31-Day Challenge #12: stripes

For today's prompt I made an attempt at freehanding rather than reaching for the striping tape. I need practice!

For the base color I used Essie First Timer (Love this color, but holy lobster hands Batman!) and I used acrylic paint for the stripes.

Next time doing stripes by hand (which will be coming up soon!) my goal is to use a lighter touch with the brush. Easier said than done, but practice makes perfect!

Oh and don't forget to admire all the other stripey manis today!


  1. Today I took the time to look at what all the other people in this challenge came up with and it's inspiring. I think your stripes look good and I should also practice freehand.

    1. Thanks very much! I've been getting a lot of inspiration from others' nails too!
