Nails | Candy Striper

Ok so these have nothing to do with a candy striper but does it sound cute? Ha!
The other day I got creative with some Sellotape after watching the lovely Gemma do her segment over on Channel 4's 'Super Scrimpers'. Its so simple but creates such a striking effect. One that you just cant achieve free hand.
This did take me quite some time but I love the result. For the base I used Models Own 'Utopia' which  is my perfect go to pastel lilac. The stripes are China Glaze 'Some Like It Haute' which I purchased in New York. Its a 3D glitter that is super sparkly and very eye catching. 
I cant even begin to tell you how many people commented on them, my friends know me for doing fun nails but everyone seemed to love this design. 
And on a side note, for once I decided not to take off my jewellery for the pictures. Hope it isn't too distracting.
I cant wait to try out new combinations soon!
