I really enjoyed doing the plaid design and thought I'd like to try it again :)
Here is my second plaid design using Orly 'Goth' and Color Club 'Red-ical Gypsy'. You know I HAD to buy a color that had Gypsy in the name :D I think this is my new favorite red too. Two coats and it was so pretty! Then I used my striper polishes to create the plaid design.
I am sooo loving this! I have it on right now and although I am dying to try some of my other new colors, I can't seem to take it off :(
It did take a while and was a bit difficult as I'm not used to nail art but I think it was totally worth it. The gal at Ulta loved it and assumed it was a pre-printed nail design like Sally Hansen's nail strips lol.
Here are a couple shots of my right hand. Hubby saw my Left hand before I added the white and silver stripe across the top and said it was a 9 of 10. Once I showed him the finished result with topcoat he said it looked too "busy". I said "well....it's plaid" duh lol. So I did my right hand with only one stripe of white and silver to tame it down a bit. But guess what? Once I showed him the milder version he said the first one looked better!!! MEN!! Oh well, they still go together and no one has notice yet that they are different :)
I'm going to continue to do the harder designs on my right hand too so that I can improve my left handed skills. Maybe one day they might even look the same on both hands :D
So, what do you think of this one? Which plaid do you like best? Did all of you other challengers enjoy doing the plaid designs?
