Stripper Pole

Hello lovelies!!  Welcome to my 70th post!!  That's 70 days worth of mani's since June 15, 2012 - how exciting is that!!  What a whirlwind couple of months!!  The nail blogging community is full of so many friendly, creative and super talented artists - I'm continually amazed by everyone's kindness, support and genuine care!  Shoot, it's hard enough to find that in the "real" world, to find it online is crazy - and super wonderful!  I am so incredibly appreciative and thankful for all your support and kindness during my start into the nail blogger world!!  In honor of that and of you, I will be hosting a MASSIVE giveaway in early October!!  I will be posting sneak peek teasers of what I will be giving away starting Monday, so check back then to see what's up for grabs - it's going to be EPIC!!

Now that I've blabbered on, here's my mani for Stripes Day for the 31 Day Challenge.  Some of you may know that I am super anal and doing stripes for me is a little daunting.  I need them to be straight and even - I don't have striping tape yet (I ordered some this week :) and taping is so much work, I decided to freehand this one.  I need a little more practice with the freehand lines, the flaws in this make me cringe, but I know that's mostly my critical eye!!  Enjoy :)

  1. *giggling furiously* Stripper Pole! Love it! (i have a twisted sense of humor,,wait till you see what i have planned for Inspired By A Song! Muahahahah!)

    In all seriousness, this is way awesome. My nails are jealous and want this mani!

  2. Really awesome! I think you did a great job on the freehand ;)

  3. What flaws?? This is gorgeous!! Beautiful freehand!! I don't have striping yet either but I will soon! :)

    1. I won't point them out, it's good that you can't see them :)

      Thanks :)

  4. We have to learn to stop being so critical of our "flawed" manis. We only notice our own mistakes, sucks to be a perfectionist! I think it's absolutely beautiful! Congrats in the big 70! I'm right behind ya sister! :)

    1. I know, right - we are fabulous!! Yay to 70!!

  5. It's very 1960's pop art. I love it.

    1. Cool, I never looked at it that way!!

      Thanks :)
