Artsy Wednesday: Stripes

I'll admit this isn't my best work but sometimes you have to learn from your failures like I'm doing with all my practice tests! :/

I had envisioned something springy & bumble bees with yellow. 


My right hand to practice my ambidextrous skills. 

Here's a shot of the yellow without the stripes: 

I used H&M Summer Sunrise.  You can see the mini set swatched here

I couldn't wear this the next day and had no time to take it off, I sloppily painted over it with Zoya Trixie (not pictured.)  If you're interested on how to make lines with striper polishes, please see my video tutorial here at the 3:30 mark.

I also had to re-enable the word verification because I kept getting spammers under the Anonymous profile. 

-Sorry of the inconvenience- 


  1. Don't be so hard on yourself - I like it, and the colors are great together :)

  4. I wouldn't call this a failure at all!! You picked fun colors, and the stripes look great! But seriously what wouldn't look great on those lovely nails!

  5. This is a really great yellow. Very bold and creamy. These colors are very BumbleBee

  6. definitely an awesome bumble-bee inspired striped mani!! LOVE!
