Inspired by Dressed Up Nails

So, Whitney from Dressed Up Nails has really been making a splash in the Nail Art community lately with all the stellar manicures she's been posting. We're both in a polish-loving facebook group and every time she posts a new picture I can hardly stop my jealousy at her freehand talent! Today I decided to try to recreate a lovely Christmas wrapping paper-esque manicure she did which you can check out here. I decided to mix up the colour scheme a bit and went for teal and gold using OPI Ski Teal We Drop and Quo by ORLY Filthy Rich.
Now if you're wondering what happened to my pinky, I decided that I was probably better at freehanding than at using striping tape. Turns out I was wrong.

Here's a nicer look of the three nails that turned out nicely. I think I'll leave the elaborate tape manis to Whitney because this, although gorgeous, was not worth the time and effort!
