Here are my stripey nails for the Golden Oldie Thursday Challenge 🙂 After all the pink flowers from my last post I needed something simple and not too complicated!
GOT polish Stripes
I started off with a thin coat of silver polish from Eyeko just on the top half of my nail, when it was dry I used some striping tape to mask off where I wanted the stripes to be, then I applied a thick coat of the vamp polish and removed the tape before it dried!
It’s so easy! the only fiddly bit was lining up the tape! I really should use my striping tape more! 😀
Look at how old those bottles are! 😀 The silver one was the first metallic/chrome polish I ever brought I think it was from Superdrug! The vamp polish joined my collection a couple of years later, it’s a blue black, and there’s nothing nasty about it!

Here is another first for me! Galaxy Nails! 😀
I used loads of nail polishes for this, I started with a base of Vamp Polish From Eyeko, then using a tiny bit of sponge I added a little bit of Blackened Bleu from Barielle shades and Alias from color club. Blackened Bleu is a lovely black jelly with dark blue and turquoise glitter, Alias is a dark blue jelly with purple duo-chrome glitter, it’s really pretty!
At this point it looked like a patchy gradient, after it had dried I added Gorgeous from sinfulcolors this polish is a bright turquoise metallic with a light gold sheen and secret agent from color club which is a light purple metallic polish. I put a drop of each polish next to each other onto an old plate and picked up both colours with my trusty bit of makeup sponge, and added a tiny bit to each nail.
when it was all dry I used Night Moves from Barielle shades for the stars, and the fine holo glitter is Sparkling silver from no.7
I finished it with a coat of fast dry topcoat from color club.
This is my first attempt at braided nails! And I’m really pleased with the result! 😀
For this I used Vamp Polish From Eyeko, Steel of the Night from Color Club and Night Moves from Barielle.
I did have a few issues with the brushes being different sizes, so next time I try this I’ll stick with one brand of polish!
