Before the 31 Day Challenge began, I ordered a sheet of KBShimmer nail vinyls. Specifically, this sheet of nail vinyls. It's a mix of thick and thin lines. I believe that the thin lines are the same size as regular striping tape. I used the thick line vinyls for this manicure.
When I started out, I knew I wanted to use Butter London Rosie Lee for a glitter accent nail. I could've easily paired it with gray, but I wanted to switch up my nails and go darker than I had for my Polka Dot mani. So I chose navy blue in the form of Road House Blues from OPI. For my soon-to-be striped nail, I chose the closet pink to Rosie Lee in my stash... SinfulColors Soul Mate.
Since nail vinyls require a little bit of dry time, I began painting Soul Mate on my ring fingers. Then, I painted a coat of Rosie Lee on my middle fingers. I worked back and forth between the two until they both had Seche Vite on top. While those nails dried, I painted Road House Blue on my remaining nails. Three coats on each nail, followed with a coat of SinfulColors Clear Coat and Seche Vite. Then it was time for stripes!
I used two of the thick line vinyls on each ring finger. Once they were positioned correctly, I painted over them with 2 coats of Road House Blues. I waited about three or four minutes in between coats. Using tweezers, I removed the vinyls immediately after painting the 2nd coat. I let my stripes set for about 10 minutes before applying a thick coat of Seche Vite. I did get a bubble, so I might've gone a little thicker than I needed to. I'll definitely remember that for next time!
