Black and White Stripes: Take Two

On Saturday night after tea with the girls, Mr LiPP and I had another wedding reception to attend. I decided to wear my lovely black and white dress again which meant I got a second chance to create striped nails. This time I decided to go with a black base and thin white stripes.


This beautiful sparkly base colour is Barry M Black Multi Glitter. It has so much glitter, in so many colours packed into a really rich black base. However, the best thing about this lovely polish is that it genuinely requires just one coat to look this amazing! It dries a little gritty but that is nothing that a nice thick slick of shiny top coat doesnt fix.

To create the stripes and spots I stamped using Konad White and the pattern taken from M65.

All of the above pictures are taken outside in direct sunlight so you can really see the pretty colours hidden in this polish. I have also included some pictures below taken in the shade. This polish does lose its edge in the shade as the glitter all looks silver and it doesnt jump out at you in the same way.

Below are a couple of swatch pictures taken in the sunshine for you to enjoy. Remember this is only one coat on each nail! Look how perfect it is :-)

Look at the amazing multi glitter showing through
What do you think? Do you like these stripes better than my first attempt seen here? Here is a little picture of me with the blushing bride and our friend Faye so you can see (kind of) my dress and nail combo from the reception a few weeks ago.
