Bar code


Hi everyone, remember a while back when I told you about bar code nails....
Well.... here they are:

Remember, this is a time consuming nail-look, so take your time with this!

I used OPI nail Envy as a base and a coat of white nail polish over that base yesterday and let that dry for half a day and an entire night.

At this point I took up some scotch tape and scissors and cut that in small strips (different thicknesses). I placed these on my nails (one nail at a time) not always the same space apart.

I went over this with 1 thick coat of OPI black onyx. (As you can see in this picture I already took of the first strip of tape):

Now slowly pull off all the strips of tape.

Now to prevent all te black to fade quickly, add a layer of Sally Hansen Ultimate Shield.

I tried my hand at this for Halloween. They did not turn out as good as yours but they look ok!!! I could not get my strips of tape small enough. So I have bigger stripes. Everyone thought it looked really good though. Course they didn't see yours either!!!!
