Racing Stripes

With Labor Day on Monday it's been a short work week, but I think the real reason it's flown by may be these racing stripes I painted on my nails. Ok, really though- I am no where near this chipper about my work week. What is it about 4 day weeks that just make every single day feel like a Monday on repeat? Thankfully tomorrow is Friday and then some well deserved sleeping in! I hope the rest of you have some big napping plans for the weekend as well.

I started out with two coats of China Glaze, When Stars Collide from their holo collection. The formula on this one was a little disappointing. It was gooey and patchy in the application. The silver shade wasn't like that, so I don't know what's up with this purple. It also chipped horribly right away. I'd lost the corners off at least half my nails before I even got to work the next morning. It's too bad, the color really is quite pretty. I added some white stripes using the brush from the bottle of a white LA Colors, then I made a second smaller stripe on top with a striping brush and China Glaze, Cosmic Dust (another holo).
