Tiger Stripes

I decided to experiment a bit more with the swirling technique I used in my last manicure post. And if you know me you know I love animal prints.

I took this picture when the manicure was already about 3 days old, so it doesn’t look perfect, but you get the gist.

I used Essie Sand Tropez, Zoya Jinx and China Glaze White on White. I painted each nail 1/3 white, 1/3 of the medium shade, then 1/3 of the bronze on the opposite side from the white. Then I swirled them together till I got a gradient I was happy with. I started in a different spot on each nail to give it a little bit of variation. I used Milani Black Sketch to paint the stripes.


Here’s a closer look:

Now I’m off to eat some dinner.  I tried out a new stuffed peppers recipe tonight (thanks, Pinterest). Can’t wait to try them.
