Nail Art Week: Sailor Stripes with Leticia Well

And «Nail Art Week» begins!! :)
If you remember, this is what I'd promised would happen after the «Swatch Game Week».

We're gonna hit it off by using all three polishes from Leticia Well (click here for swatches).
For some reason, I wanted Sailor Stripes on my nails, so this is what happened.

Check it out:






These are Leticia Well Long Lasting Nos.125, 129 and 130.




And here's a close up of all the different nail designs.
I'm in love with how well these three colours work together :)





I started by applying two coats of white polish to make the colours really pop.
I've used Inocos Pipoca em Viagem.





After waiting a good 30/35min I applied striping tape on all nails, going for different width kind of stripes.
And then using a dotting tool, I filled in the blanks (literally hehehe), trying to match the colours in different combos, too.




I love the end result soooo much!
Despite having had to wait for the base polish to dry in full (which is a bore if you're in a hurry), this is such an easy mani to accomplish.
And look how striking the whole look is :))



I hope you've liked it just as much; I think we started off the week in style ;)
Wishing you a great afternoon/evening!


Hugs & Kissies,

    1. hehehe - agree, Emiline! That's why I don't go for striping manis as often - I love them but I hate them kind of thing, know what I mean? ;) Thank you for stopping by, dear *
