More after the break...
Here you can see my base nails, sorry this was a little while after I did it, due to exams this was actually done over a number of days which is why its started to chip here.
On my thumb and second finger I have just Barry M - 304 Mint Green.
On my first and little finger I have Sally Hansen Complete Manicure Salon Nail Polish - Ion
On my ring finger is Ion covered with one layer of Barry M - 304 Mint Green.
On my left hand I cut up pieces of sellotape into tiny strips, stuck them on my nail, painted over and peeled them off quickly. This was fiddly, especially cutting them to the same thickness.
On my right hand I pained the stripes with a thin paintbrush, considering this was done with my less dominant hand, and it was rather late at night, it actually turned out alright.
My final step was to cover the nails with a matte polish, I even covered the glitter nails, strangely I actually liked the effect the matte caused the glitter to go like, however it looked better when there was less glitter on the nail, unlike usual where I actually prefer to have more glitter on the nail. Unfortunately I couldn't get a very good picture of this. So decided not to include a separate one.
So, i'm sorry this was quite bad, but as the title suggests i'm a newbie to Nail Art, so please don't expect a lot - I hope you like it anyway, and please check out The Nailasaurus' original post as its a lot better than mine!
