31-Day Challenge #3: yellow striped gradient

This mani marks my first successful use of a striping brush! How exciting is that. I followed this easy tutorial by A Little Polish.

Polishes I used, from top to bottom: Julep Abbie, Sinful Colors Snow Me White (a two-coat white!! Where have you been all my life?), Sally Hansen Lightening, and OPI The "It" Color. I noticed when I was done that The "It" Color looks really orange here next to the other yellows, but in reality I'd say it's right on the border between orange and yellow.

Like I said, this was really easy to do and I like the intentionally imperfect result! Unfortunately I ended up with stained yellow nails despite my base coat. Good thing they'll be covered up by nail art for the next month!

Check out today's other yellow manis!


  1. I like your version of yellow :) I have never did this kind of manicure, but after I saw this, I have to try! :)

    1. Thank you! Definitely try it, it's not hard at all!
