Sunglow Stripes

Yeesh, I have been such a bad blogger lately! Why aren't you all admonishing me and telling me to step my game up?? ;) I finally have something new to share with you all...but I'm not overly in love with it. I'm such a tease, I'm sorry! D: I hope this weekend inspiration will smack me in the face and ask what the heck I've been doing this week. 

I actually really really love the color palette, but I defiantly failed when it came to the execution of these. They're a bit...Easter-y? I think I need to revisit these colors together in a different pattern though. My inspiration was an Anthropologie dress called the Sunglow Stripes Dress and oh my giddy gumdrops, I wish I had a spare $268 to throw at this dress. I seriously love it. And need it. Like last week. 

 My palette ended up consisting of 5 colors including my base of OPI's My Vampire is Buff. I don't even want to imagine a world where MVIB is NOT a color. I mean, I'm pretty sure angels are weeping just thinking about that. It's just such a fabulous color. I think it's actually moved into first place for my favorite base color, with My Boyfriend Scales Walls a close second. 

The turquoise is China Glaze's Kinetic Candy and the coral is their Surreal Appeal polish. The pewter looking polish is Julep's Zelda (excellent name!) and the neon yellow is Serum No.5's Day Glow.
I used a combination of striping tape to get an even line between the stripes and my medium striping brush to create these. Pretty simple! 

Happy Polishing! :)
