Tiger Stripes Twist

Hey Everyone!
Today I have a design for you that I personally adore, I love a bright coloured nail polish and since it is Summer, orange is the way to go. For today's design I opted for an orange base and so the obvious direction to take that in, is tiger stripes. A simple, but still creative design idea that gives something different to a plain nail polish.
As you can see the twist here is using the alternating colours, black and white, to create the tiger stripes. I adore this twist because I feel the stripes in different colours add a new contrast to the orange colour than when just a white or black stripe is used.
Since I simply used a striping brush to create this design its safe to say, pretty much anyone can give it a go. Even if you're not the best when it comes to nail art designs but are just hoping to experiment. A useful tool idea if you don't have a striping polish is to use an old liquid eyeliner applicator. The thin tip allows the stripes to be applied evenly and the thickness is easily altered. Plus, it allows you to use the brush with different colours, rather than the one it originally came with.
Above are the polishes I used to create this nail look, I discussed how well the black Superstar polish and the Emily The Strange striper work in previous posts. The Le nail varnish is pretty pigmented for a white, however, a few coats are still needed for the best amount of brightness. I've tried Googling this brand but can't seem to find anything I'm afraid, the nail polish came in a set I received a while ago from a friend, so I apologise for being unable to offer any more information regarding this polish.
How adorable is the bottle for this orange polish? I am very excited about this polish and will discuss it further in an upcoming blog post. However, the orange colour is much more neon than is showing up in the picture which I guess you could say also gives a twist to the tiger stripes. The pigmentation of this polish is very impressive, especially for the price. Anyway, I'll keep this brief because I will be discussing this polish and a couple more from the same brand in an upcoming blog post!
Do you like animal print nails? If so, which have you tried?

  8. I do like animal print nails, especially stripes like these and also leopard spots though they're quite a bit trickier to do. Your nails look great :D x
