Candy Stripes

I know everyone is in full swing
with the holidays and their Christmas mani's 
but I just couldn't help but squeeze this last
gem in before I go all ho - ho - holiday!


I'm such a sucker for pretty girlie shades, 
and I've been a huge light pink kick in particular. 

So I started with a light pink base color,
China Glaze in Dance Baby

Once dried, 
I cut several pieces of nail art striping tape
placing them onto the nail in a horizontal stripe pattern. 

Using the following 3 shades,
Barry M. in Mint Green
Orly in Purple Crush
Color Club in Disco Dress
and a sponge, 
I sponged the colors onto the whole nail, over the tape.
Then removed the tape, applied a top coat and vola!

It reminds me of
something Katy Perry would wear, and SO I'm loving it in all this
sea of Red & Green!
