What do you do when you're torn between stripes and a gradient? You combine them! I absolutely LOVE these! These are fun and colorful and I just can't let go of summery bright colors to transition into darker fall colors. I can't do it!
I started with a base of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in White On because that's the color I wanted my stripes to be. Then I cut up a bunch of strips of striping tape and started putting them all on. Much to my dismay I realized that I accidentally put the striping tape in the wrong direction while doing the second nail. Surprisingly, after seeing it, I decided to keep it and alternated each nail. Then that got me thinking to alternate colors!
If you are wondering where to get striping tape you can easily find it on Amazon extremely cheap and that's where I purchased mine. The exact ones that I purchased can be found here.
I used acrylic paint and a sponge for all the colors in the gradient just because they were already sitting out and I didn't feel like searching for specific polishes. I guess you could say today was a lazy day since I haven't been feeling the greatest. Nail polish works the same way if you don't have acrylic paint!
