Black and White Stripes are Breezi

I hope you enjoyed this one as much I as did. It's simple and cute - and most of the time that's what I like!

Before the pictures, I want to apologize how yellow the pictures look. As you can tell, I recently just started using a light box and I am still trying to figure this thing out. Oh how I wish natural sunlight was more dependable.

If any of you light box users have any tips and tricks, please be sure to let me know!

Now, for yellow pictures.

For the blue, I used Zoya Breezi from my post the other day. I love this color and can't get enough of it. After a about a day or so, I added the black and white stripes just to add a fun little twist. For the white base on the pointer and thumb fingers, I used Sally Hansen Xtreme White Out and just a plain black acrylic paint for the stripes. Boy does it take steady hands to make those lines! I must say that was a real challenge but I am proud to say they look pretty decent!

Again, please pardon my weird colored looking skin. I personally prefer natural sunlight but with winter coming around, I'll have to play around with time considering that we barely get enough sun time out. So hopefully soon the lighting will be perfected! In the mean time, please bare with me.

So please let me know if you have any tips! I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!


  1. This is a lovely mani, very nice indeed. I am also wearing a multitude of different stripes on a neon polish today :)

  2. This is so cool! I like the unique accent fingers. I know what you mean about the lighting, I was having that issue too until I found a white light bulb - any of them labeled "white" or "natural light" are best for pics. As soon as I turned mine on I was shocked at the difference between it and a regular bulb, it is definitely way less yellow and much more natural looking!

    1. I think I am getting the hang of the lighting thing, sort of. But I will def try that type of bulb. Thanks so much!

  3. This is so cute! I think you did a great job with it. The lines came out awesome.

  4. Your lines are perfect, they look great! Breezi is a fab color x

  5. Such an awesome mani! I love how striking the chevrons stripes are against the dustier blue :)

  6. Wow, you did an amazing job on those lines! Great mani!

  7. This is so awesome! I love how unexpected it is!

  8. Sorry, I totally was not clear enough. LOL I erased the blue off of the index and thumb and used a white base. Sorry!
