Diagonal Stripes: OPI Ogre the Top Blue + Sally Hansen White On

Hi people! So I decided to experiment a little bit more with a striped scotch tape mani today. The colors I used for my main nails was OPI Ogre the Top Blue from the Shrek Collection and my accent nail had a base of Sally Hansen White On. Instead of straight vertical stripes, I did a diagonal pattern just to see how it would turn out. I didn't want to do too much so I only did an accent nail for experimentation purposes. =P


It almost reminds me of a sailor pattern. 
 This gives me future mani ideas hahah...

Ogre the Top Blue is actually a pretty bright blue creme that was opaque in one solid coat - I did 2 though hahah. I would say it leans towards a turquoise. Really pretty and perfect for bright sunny weather. The stripes I did were actually pretty easy to do. The only trick was to get them spaced properly and also because my nails do have a pretty high C curve, I had to make sure the tape pieces were lying flat. Overall though, good stuff! Happy Friday everyone - I hope you all have a great weekend to look forward to!

I liked the diagonal pattern, the blue is awsome, but Im afraid that would be to bold for me.

@Nadia - Thanks girl! And you're right... that blue was actually a lot brighter than I had originally thought haha. It's nice for a bold look though =P
