Striped Manicure: black, grey, blue


Here`s a gorgeous striped manicure using very unique colors. We have all seen the classic "diagonally-striped manicure," and I personally love that manicure (as long as you don`t use crazy-colors so you look like a clown or hippie!)

But these colors are so cohesive and beautiful together, it looks amazing! The black, grey and blue look great!

Anyways, this is what you need to complete this look:

1. Base coat

2. Wet n` Wild "Black"

3. China Glaze "Recycle"

4. China Glaze"DV8"

5. Tape

6. Top coat

The key thing in completing this look is alot of PATIENCE. As you can probably tell, there`s alot of drying time and layering involved.

Alot of layering means trying to do as thin as possible coats, while still getting the full opacity!

That`s why when you are doing a look like a 3-striped nail manicure (like this one), then you should use the most opaque nail polishes possible. Here, these colors are quite opaque, so it`s good!

When you apply the tape, put it on an angle so you get the "angled" look like in the picture above.

One more thing, I suggest that while you are waiting you listen to music, or even have a fan nearby to help them dry. Just do something so you don`t wreck your nails, because then you would have to start over! I hate when that happens -_-

Anyways, now I have some questions for you guys...

1. Do you like this manicure?
2. Do you like stripes?

Comment below if you have any questions, XO! :)
