Striped Nail Art

So today I did a little striped nail art with some striping tape and textured polishes. It is so cute and fun that I wanted to share it with all of you!

I started out with a base of Zoya Purity on the nails that I was going to be doing the nail art on. Once that was dry I applied my striping tape in the design that I wanted.

When I was satisfied with the placement of my striping tape I then polished over the entire nail (striping tape too) with China Glaze Texture in Itty, Bitty, & Gritty. I applied 2 coats to the nails. I love this color so much! It's such a bright and cheery coral color and I am sooooo in love with the textured polishes.

Then instead of waiting for it to dry I immediately and very carefully peeled off my striping tape, thus revealing my base color of Zoya Purity. As you will see doing this with the textured polishes doesn't always end up with clean lines but that's ok because nothing is perfect (no matter how much I want it to be, lol).

I then applied the China Glaze Itty, Bitty, & Gritty to the remaining nails and waited for everything to dry! Dry time is average and application was a breeze! I think that it turned out pretty good and am already planning my next striping tape mani!! Hope you all enjoyed this! :)


  1. Ahh, this is so cute! I wasn't really digging the China Glaze textures at first, but this one works so well with your design and everything that it's actually growing on me!
