NOTD | Pink candy stripe nails

It's been a little while since I've done a nail art post, so I thought it was definitely time :) 

Currently at my local Westfield shopping centre they have an amazing deal on - if you spend £70 on fashion you get a free OPI polish! I saw the posters whilst I was having a wonder around with my friend. I didn't really buy anything but he was prepping for his trip to London to see Lady Gaga & the £70 target was easily reached :) Being a guy & all that he was happy for my to take advantage of his little spree & claim the OPI polish for myself. When I went to the concierge they offered me 1 of 3 colours... a gold shade (of which I already own a similar Topshop shade), a red/orange shade (which was quite similar to my Tasmanian Devil Made Me Do It) & a lovely dusty rose colour. As you can probably guess I went for the pink shade, called Sparrow Me The Drama.

Now on to the nail art... I decided to do a candy stripe nail, as I thought my new polish would make a perfect base. Below are the products I used...


So, I used Sally Hansen's miracle nail thickener as a base coat & then 2 applications of my shiney new OPI Sparrow Me The Drama. Next I used a white nail striper & painted a line down the centre of my nail. Followed by 2 stripes on each side of the centre stripe. When the white stripes had dried I applied a generous layer of OPI's rapid dry top coat.


Voila! Simple, but oh-so cute :)
