Gradient purple stripes nail art with video tutorial!

Hello lovelies,

I've done a video tutorial for this manicure back in June so it's long overdue. I'd love to show you more videos but it's such a pain for me to edit them and upload them :-/

Anyway...after doing my first ever stripy manicure using striping tape, I wanted to repeat it but with different colours. I've used following polishes: OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, China Glaze Grape Pop, Zoya Lotus and Zoya Pinta.

Hope my tutorial will help you to recreate something similar. If you do please credit back to me and share this tutorial so it inspires others :)

EDIT: I forgot to mention that it's really important to use fast drying topcoat after applying two coats of polish. Let it dry for about 10 minutes and then you can apply the striping tape

  2. I so needed this when I was in high school (oh so many years ago)!!! Our colors were purple and white. I was lucky that my favorite color is purple. Guess I may have to show my spirit again by sporting this mani. Go Eagles! Purple Pride!

  3. YAY! I absolutely adore your video tutorials Lucy, thank you so much for taking the time to do them :) This is so beautiful, love seeing how you create it! If I attempt it I'll probably only do one accent nail! I'm so impatient! Haha!

    1. Oh no! I've just checked YT and it says it is indeed restricted in Germany because I've used background music that is under copyright law :( next time without music then..

  13. Díky za toto video! Ne, že bych se do toho zdobení někdy chtěla pouštět - přijde mi, že udělat celou ruku by mi trvalo hodinu a to mám ruce dvě, žejo. Ale ta hudba!!! Alexe Clare jsem neznala a okamžitě tahám celé album. Díky za tenhle objev!

    2. No já jsem se právě koukala, že měl koncert v Roxy snad PŘEDEVČÍREM :) No ale určitě do Prahy zase přijede. Budu ho sledovat ;) Super je, že jsme se na téhle hudbě shodli i s mužem. A to jsme v poslední době zažívali docela ehm... no řekněme že "hudební nesoulad" :)

  17. Even though I can't watch the vid (I'm from germany), I did my best without striping tape and without your loads of talent and patience to do my version of this manicure.

    My blog is in german, but I added the button to translate the text at the very top of the site(and yes, Google Translator is pretty bad... it made me laugh while reading the translated text xD)

    1. Thank you very much Sarah! I plan to narrate the videos in the future so there are no restrictions due to a bacground music. Thank you very much for the mention in your blog post! I've noticed you live in Aachen - I've travelled through Aachen so many times! World is really small :)
