Something Old, Something Blue

Back when I started my blog around February of this year I basically just dumped all of my photos onto it. Those old posts contain pretty low-quality photos of past manicures I've done. Unless you've backtracked to the very beginning of my blog you probably have never seen them. What does this have to do with anything? Well, despite the horrible quality of the photos I still have a soft spot for some of my older designs. This is one of them: a duochrome shimmer base with zebra stripes! It's definitely a crowd pleaser and oh-so-easy. Funnily, my mother loves this one- she's asked for it at least twice! :P (If you want to see the first version of this, continue here: Duochrome Safari)

I started off with Sally Hansen Blue-Away and sponged American Apparel L'esprit on the free edges. Topped it off with a couple coats of Sally Hansen DVD and a black striping polish for the zebra stripes. I also added some black holographic glitter on select stripes but it's a bit difficult to see.

Are there any old manicure designs that you continue to love? Something that never gets old? Feel free to link me! (:
