Day 12 is stripes. I had seen a technique similar to this not too long ago, but wanted to make it fresh. I free hand painted horizontal stripes using 4 different colors that were bright and fun. Wait for that to fully dry, and then added striping tape in various patterns. I then topped it off with a coat of white.
So bright and sunny!
Here's what I liked about this one... it was fresh, bright, perfect for a fun warm day. The bad? There are two coats of white polish on here, and the green color peeked through. Yuck. Maybe white was a bad choice. This would have looked great with black as the top color, but then it would have looked like the example I saw so long ago. And no one likes a copycat.
I definitely need some more practice with striping tape. It's best to remove the tape quickly after applying the overcoat, but with using white I needed two coats. And that's why you see some wobbly parts.
Whatcha think? Are you an expert striper?
