NOTD: Stripes, Studs, and Chevrons

My nail of the day is this girly, simple design that I did on top of a sheer white base.

I started out with four thin coats of OPI - Don't Touch My Tutu, a white crelly polish. Here I've topped it with Sally Hansen Big Matte Topcoat. I absolutely love this polish--it's perfect for a palate cleanser. Using this for the first time in a while,  I realized how much I've improved with using sheer polishes. It really does require practice!

I wore this combo all day on Monday, and loved this classic, clean look. Of course,  I couldn't just leave it alone!

First, using a Winstonia Store striping brush, I applied thin, vertical stripes using OPI - Love.Angel.Music.Baby. Even though I admit I have WAY too many gold polishes, this one is at least in the top three!

Then, using a smaller Winstonia Store brush, I painted a V shape and filled it in using China Glaze - For Audrey. I finished the look off with gold square studs from the Born Pretty Store.

Sometimes the simplest nail art has the biggest impact. I got more compliments on this today than I have on any other designs in months!
