Copycat: Spots and Stripes

For a while now I have been a fan of the blog Nuthin’ But A Nail Thing. Claire comes up with such wonderful nail art designs – she’s really talented! So today I thought I would start a new nail art series doing my own take on some of my favourite nail art designs, starting with Claire’s Spots and Stripes design.

Claire has such lovely long nails compared to my short ones, so I knew that I wouldn’t be able to do as many spots, but I am so pleased with the outcome!

Spots and Stripes

Black and pink is such a nice combo, especially as the pink has a bit of sparkle in it. I love how striking they are! I’m starting to think that this pattern would be really nice in pastel colours to give it a spring look. Maybe green and yellow or something. I can’t wait to try this again when my nails have gotten longer.

I would really recommend following Claire’s Nuthin’ But A Nail blog if you don’t already – I’m sure I’ll be copycatting her designs again in the future!

For this manicure I used:
  • OPI – Nail Envy
  • Kiko – 277
  • L.A. Colors – Black Striper
  • Dotting tool in 2 sizes
  • Seche Vite – Quick Dry Topcoat
