Drips and stripes nail art

Hello! Earlier this month while I was looking to buy a new case for my mobile phone (here’s one I ended up buying and I love it!) I discovered mobile phone cases make perfect nail art inspiration. I had been wanting to try out some new stripers I bought from The Nail Shop so when I saw the picture of the cases below I knew I had to give it a whirl!

I used Face of Australia Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend (pink) and Isn’t It Delicious (green) for the stripes and drips over a coat of Sinful Colors Sinful Shine Wisp. My stripes are a bit dodgy as I’m still getting used to them, but I’m really happy with the striper set I bought. I might even do a separate review of them, if anyone’s interested? (To see what I’m talking about check out a post I made about them on IG here). The drips, well yes, I could probably have made them more “drippy” but I wanted the lines to be prominent.

Now a note on the photos. I’ve upped the size of them by 200 pixels. So my landscape pictures are 900 pixels and my portrait pictures are 800 pixels. Too big? I don’t mind what the portrait pictures look like but I thought the landscape picture looks a bit cumbersome so I reduced its display setting to 700 pixels and when clicked, it shows at the full size of 900 pixels. What do you think? I’d love to hear your thoughts. I hope that train of thought is not too difficult to follow. Thanks for reading!

  1. That mani is just too cute, I love it. And I liked your photo sizes:)

    • Thank you! It was slightly messy to create but really easy to do if you’re patient with clean-up! Thanks for letting me know what you think of the picture sizes. 🙂

  2. For what it’s worth everything shows up nicely on my phone!

    Love this mani! I’m definitely also interested in a review on stripers…I have 2 that are a bit Ho-hum – would love to hear an opinion on others out there.

    • Woohoo! I’m glad it shows up well. That’s a relief. I think I might do something on the stripers then. When I was looking to buy a new set there wasn’t really a lot of info / personal experience written out there, so if I can help others out that would be nice.

Please leave a comment! I read every one and always reply.
