31DC2014 and Digital Dozen Second Anniversary: Sapphire Stripes

Purchased by Me
The Dalai Lama's Nails | 31DC2014 Digital Dozen Sapphire Stripes

Phewwwww! I’ve made it to the last day of the combined prompts for the 31 Day Challenge and the Digital Dozen second year anniversary week! I do think that having two prompts to fulfill has pushed my creative boundaries – but I’m glad I can go back to just worrying about the 31 Day Challenge again! And… oh, only a few weeks left! Oh dear. Today’s prompt for the 31 Day Challenge is stripes, and at the Digital Dozen we had our pick of sapphires or things that come in pairs. So, I’ve gone with really sparkly blue sapphire stripes! I think my creative juices were all used up during the rest of this week – although they are simple, I still love how these stripes came out.

This was a very simple look to create. I used a long striping brush and simply swept my stripes on from base to tip, using a slow, steady motion! I used: OPI Swimsuit…Nailed It!, Zoya Storm, Color Club Sky High, Zoya Yummy, and Zoya Trixie. I added a coat of INM Northern Lights for even more sparkle, and finished with a coat of Seche Vite for maximum shine. The Dalai Lama's Nails | 31DC2014 Digital Dozen Sapphire StripesWell, it sure has been an intense week!
