Day 12 - Stripes!

Alright. No making fun of this one. I had a great idea that really didn't work when I did it on my nails, but I really wanted to post this because I think it's important to see progress (in a year, or even a month, I think I'll be feeling pretty good about my improvement). I can't believe I forgot to post this yesterday, or maybe I subconsciously put it off? I tried to do a cutesy nautical theme. The stripes on my thumb and pinkie were freehand, the middle finger was two stamps of a stripey french tip that I went over with white and ChG Sea Spray.

srsly, always the pinkie out randomly!

at least this picture is cool :p

Not my favorite. I'm not really feeling too hot about this. I'm kinda in a slump, and I have a ton to catch up on today and the rest of the weekend - but at least I get three days off. I broke a nail at work today, so I might have to try a new nail shape.

  1. I still think it's cute! And it's not just stripes! Awesome! :) Sometimes I think this challenge will be the end of me! My creative juices are being sucked out! But other times I love it! (but I'm not looking forward to tribal nails! eek!)

    1. Aw, thanks! I really like this challenge, but there are so many things I want to do, I feel like I should just keep doing it over and over again. I think the prompts are great for inspiration. But I'm also really nervous about tribal nails :o/
