Barielle Freehand

Quilted Stripes

Thursday, July 18, 2013Nail A College Drop Out

Have I mentioned just how many creative and inspiring images are on Instagram? Well the ideas for these nails came from a hashtag I stumbled upon, #quiltednails. So the next obvious step was for me to try them out for myself.

This mani was actually pretty simple to create. For the stripes I used Barielle Gotta Have Fate, Surf's Up, Smarty Pants, and Head of the Class. Next, I added a layer of quick dry top coat. After that, I laid down pieces of striping tape to create a relief pattern with matte top coat after the tape was removed.


 L-R: Gotta Have Fate, Surf's Up, Smarty Pants, and Head of the Class

Smarty Pants & Head of the Class are part of the Barielle Brilliant Collection. The 5-Pack retails for $25 and individual shades, like Gotta Have Fate & Surf's Up, are $8 each on Barielle.com.

These, by far, are my favorite texture nails to date! What do you think?
Tune in. Drop out. Love polish.
