sunday nails #32 - candy striped nails

Hello lovelies, I hope that you are all having a lovely sunday. Firstly, I am going to apologise for 2 nail posts in a row, not very well planned out by me there, whoopsie! Tomorrows post, won't be nail related..pinkie promise!

I knew I was going to do this nail art when I received the nails inc '10 summer must haves' collection in the post this week. (post here) The colours were sitting together in the packaging and looked so summery that I knew I had to stripe them together.

The colours remind me of those fruit salad sweets you can get but much brighter. Although the actual design makes me think of candy crush when you get 4 in a row and the fruit turns stripey...addiction much?! I used nails inc. phoenix place for the base and then added nails inc. porchester place for the stripes. This design is so easy to do, I just used striping tape and pulled it off again whilst the varnish was wet, simple but effective. 



  1. your nails look sooo good!

  2. Oh my gosh I just started playing Candy Crush....hhahaa you are so right!

    Beautiful nails...your stripes are so perfect!! How?!
