Ok, so who doesn't love some colorful stripes? They're just so fun, whether they're in rainbow socks or bright nail polish! So, Last night, I got out a rainbow of nail polish, and painted stripes all over my nails. I used 8 different colors, and a few address labels to do it. First, I cut the address labels into strips about the width and length of my nails, and laid one down on my first nail with the bottom about a third of the way up. Then, I painted it with my first color. Once that had dried a little bit, I put a different label about two thirds of the way up, and carefully painted starting at the edge of the first color, and filling to the label, like this:
 I folded the label a little bit for that part though, so that it would stay on better, and cover the nail more. After that, I just painted the tips a third color.
I tried to use a different color combination on each finger, but there were a few that I was favoring, like lime, pink, and blue/turquoise. My right hand didn't turn out as well as the let, but over all, I liked how they turned out!
I hope you have a glitterific day!
