Mixed Finish Stripes

I wanted to mix the finishes of the Zoya 2015 collection in a nail art look.  It was hard to decide what to do but I reminded myself I could do several more, so I went with this negative space striped look.  I was inspired to do a negative space striped design by @bostonmerlin10 on Instagram.


So, I started with no base.  In hindsight, I should've used a basecoat to reduce staining, but I forgot until I was halfway through.  Whoops.  I then used striping tape to make the negative space lines.  Then, I filled in the design with Zoya Sia (blue cream), Lidia (purple cream), and Estelle (blue metallic).  I'm digging the mix of finishes here and I'm planning more.

Zoya can be purchased directly from Zoya.com or from Beauty Brands and Ulta.
