30/31 Day Challenge: Day 12 - Stripes

Ok...so after yesterdays awesome dots, today we have stripes. And I hate em.
Wanting to do Grey and Pink was great in my head until I realized I picked a grey that takes 3 coats to get opaque for a tape mani. Which you may or may not know, but when doing a tape mani you really wanted the thinnest and quickest drying polishes possible. So it was kinda time consuming, which Missy does not do too well. Patience. pfffft.

So...for this the base is Recycle by China Glaze. When I first bought this, I adored it. Now though, I feel like there are much better and much more opaque versions of this color. Sadly, I don't own those. Time to start looking, do you have a favorite medium grey that is opaque in one or two coats? Tell me about it if you do!


I taped off some stripe patterns using striping tape and then I used Orly Preamp for the pink.


Finished with Hard Candy's matte top coat.


Now take a gander at what everyone else is doing today for their stripes!
