WNAC March 2016: Stripes + Tutorial

Hey Polishers!,

How has your day been? Mine has been tiresome. Did some studying for my mid-term that I have to write tomorrow. I'm that person that could study and feel great and then get to the exam and panic lol. So I'm trying to just relax and not over think it you know?

Alright so it's a new moth and this means a new WNAC 2016 challenge! Yup the them for this month is rainbow and the first prompt was stripes. I've actually wanted to do something like this for a while..but there's also been other manis that I ended up doing instead. So I'm so glad that this prompt came up! Let's see how I did!

Alright as usual I'm going to show you what this month is going to look like which you can see down below! As you can see there are some pretty fun prompts this month. May the nail Gods help me when it comes to unicorns because I legit don't know what I'm going to do lol.

I've also decided that I'm going to include my tutorials into my posts from now on instead of having them in a separate post. What do you think Yay or nay? Do you prefer the tutorial before or after the photos? This also means I won't be doing the step-by-step instructions because then my posts may be too long. Sorry. Lol. I also had this tutorial done since last week but then my computer restarted and well...let's just say I wasn't a happy camper when I came home to see that the computer had restarted. 


I like the final outcome although I wish my lines were a little bit more straight but other than that I'm content. I also clearly couldn't wait long enough for the polish to dry so I smudged it a bit. Smh. You would think that I would learn by now lol. This theme has made me realize that I don't have enough greens in my collection so don't be surprised if you see me reuse the one that I used here!

I also decided to add matte top coat because why not?

  5. Looks great! I've never done a rainbow striped gradient cause I always felt my nails where too short to get all the colors in one nail.

    Love the rainbow stripes! For unicorn you could maybe do pastels with iridescent flakies / glitter instead of trying to draw a unicorn?
