31 Day Challenge: Back to School Stripes

I feel so nostalgic looking at these nails! When I was young I used to love the start of September as it meant new pens, notebooks and general school accessories. I still to this day love stationery and the smell of books. Yes, I'm weird like that.

This prompt has my name written all over it. As you may or may not know, I am a self confessed stripeoholic. I love stripes even despite the fact that horizontal stripes are a right bitch to paint! That's true love that is.

I was going for a cartoony look so I sealed my design with a layer of matte top coat. Look out for a tutorial for these on Nail Spec soon! See you tomorrow xx

  1. Stripoholic ;) or Stripeoholic? Either way I'm with you girl. Love these nails & although the going back to school isn't as fun for me (I'm a teacher) I'm a big fan of stocking up on some new pens and notepads.
