Gettin’ there! This one’s pretty simple — mostly because I was diggin’ on these latest metallic Essie polishes and needed to get some stripey manis in. So the base on this is three coats of Essie Good As Gold; the other couple I’ve tried so far did fine in two, but this one had some bubbling issues (we’ll blame that on user error) so I threw another light coat after the second as a sort of camo. Then went in with China Glaze Solar Power and a striper brush to add some vertical bars. If you ever start thinking your nails are too long, throw some vertical lines on there, you’ll be horrified.
