On a Diagonal
As you know, my latest obsession is my nails. This past week I tried something slightly different that was kind of inspired by something I saw on Pinterest or the The Nail Side. When I first chose the colors, I thought that they looked great together; quite summery. I first painted my nails with the white polish. Once dried, I used painters' tape (I didn't trust scotch tape to not peel of the polish) to section my nail in 1/2 on the diagonal. Then I painted the tips to the tape orange. Once that was dry I applied a topcoat.
I have mixed feelings about the final result. Overall, I like the look. What I'm not too pleased with is how the colors look together. Looking at this picture I think it looks quite lovely. However each time I look at my nails I am reminded of a circus clown with the stark white and bright orange. I have a distaste for circus clowns so I'm not too sure how long my nails will stay like this. But I would certainly do this type of a design again; just with different colors.
