This is my first entry in one of The Crumpet‘s nail challenges! This one’s called Golden Oldies Thursdays and the theme for this week is STRIPES. For my manicure I used some very old polishes to stick true to the rules. In fact, I really went for the gusto and used one verrrrry old polish!
My white tips were painted with Sally Hansen Teflon Tuff polish called French White Tips. I don’t know how old it is, but I would guess about 20 yrs old? Wow, right? My magenta stripes were made with a Stripe Rite striper that I bought at Sally’s when I first started dabbling in nail art. So I’d say that it’s probably 4 yrs old. Funny thing…. I never use my stripers anymore! Why, I have no idea! Then I outlined the stripes with a black nail art pen and stamped a little floral konad design on my accent nails. This M4 KONAD plate was the verrrry first stamping plate that I bought a few yrs ago, so it’s perfect to use for this Golden Oldies challenge! 🙂
I’m not excited about my nail art pen lines looking so sloppy though! I think the pen sticks and drags on the surface of my polish and it always looks funny- like a kindergartener did them. Oh well! It is what it is. The sloppiness gives it some panache, right?
If you’re wondering why my nailbeds look so pink, so am I! I started using Duri Rejuvacote and I am halfway through my ten day trial! Not sure why my nails are turning pink with it! I will post all the results when my ten days is up. I love before and after pics!!!
