I don’t know about you but I’ve been having a blast doing the Oh Mon Dieu Challenge! I’m so happy to see so many fresh designs each day and that they span across different platforms like wordpress, blogger, IG and FB! It’s so fun doing this challenge with all you girls! Just had to say that!
Moving on to the theme for day 11- STRIPES. I’ve never really done a straight up striped mani before so I went with a simple design. I started with 2 coats of mint green polish and then painted on some beige and purple stripes using the bottle brushes right from the nail polish bottles. Then I made some thin stripes using gold nail polish and a skinny striper brush. This mani was relatively quick to put together. And I like the soft vintage neutral tones… it’s almost like a palette cleanser since I’ve been using a lot of crazy bright colors during the challenge! Here’s the polishes I used….
Mint Green ♥ Orly Jealous, Much?
Purple ♥ Butter London Scoundrel
Neutral Beige ♥ Butter London Yummy Mummy
Gold ♥ Sally Hansen Golden-I
Check out the other striped manis here↓ and I’ll see you tomorrow for dots, dots, and more dots!

Thank you Lisa 😀
Love this look. Very vintage looking. 🙂
Thanks Rach! Its a little more subdued than some my recent designs 🙂
Nothing wrong with that. Sometimes simple is better. 🙂 So pretty!
Love the colors!
Thank you! I actually got inspiration from my bathroom colors… i have a sage, purple and tan martha stewart shower curtain! Hehe
Aaahhh that’s an interesting color. I like it for a fun night out.
Thanks darlin! I had to keep in on for an extra day since it came out so cute!
This is such a beautiful color combination for stripes, great job!
That mint is gorgeous (I’ve been obsessed with mint lately). I do like that it is a bit of a palette cleanser, as you’ve said; but it’s not too neutral either! 🙂
Thanks! I love that mint JEALOUS MUCH too. I took a trip outta town to pick it up as part of their new orly cool romance collection, But Sally’s didn’t have it in stock 😦 Then a few weeks later my mom bought herself one! She likes to joke to me: JEALOUS MUCH? teeheheee!! Now it’s her fave color of all time.
Well, I finally got myself one when I was buying all the bottles for this giveaway! win!
Love it! What a perfect color combo! Just perfect 😀
awww thanks girl!
I love the vintage feel! And I’m in awe of your skills to freehand such lovely stripes!
I love all the colours together
