I was surprised that this look, given how easy it was to create, got a lot of second looks(by myself too) when I wore it. There's something about a strong linear pattern combined with simplicity of the color palette that draws the eye I suppose.
As I'm sure you can deduce, I have my base color of very pale pink and a black striping polish and nothing much else. The polishes used here were Sinful Colors Easy Going as the base and a black Jordana striper polish. I started with a thicker line in the middle and nuzzled two skinny lines on both sides of it. Give yourself a top coat and you're done. I think I had this look stored away from the days of Steven Tyler on American Idol- by the way I much prefer the current judges- and he'd rock a line down his nails most days and I wanted to take that and make it a little more feminine, but still have a little edge. What say you? Mission accomplished?
On to the random swatching. I never tire of this part- because if you're a nail polish fanatic like me you'll understand that you have much more polish than you've tried in nail art, so it's nice to have a place to showcase the polishes waiting in the wings to be tried but haven't got to the front of the line yet :) Drum roll please....every little polish deserves to feel special...
