Faded Stripes

I love playing around with my Additives, I know at first many were a little daunted about what to actually do with them but you really have to just let your imagination run wild.  I had this idea in my head of different shades faded into each other, broken up by stripes.


I took CND Shellac Indigo Frock, cured two coats and then applied the striping tape evenly spaced out as that was the result I wanted but I think it would be interesting for them to be random sized stripes too.
 
 
I choose three CND Additives that I thought would do well together but equally that they were not similar as I wanted a definite colour change between them.


I applied the colours with a small brush but a little bit more than needed so that it naturally fell either side of the striping tape, creating a natural blend of colours with minimal effort.

 
Here is what I ended up with.  This is probably another amazing idea for Shellac Shelf Sitters because you can only see a glimpse of the gorgeous Indigo Frock underneath anyway.
 
I hope you enjoyed reading this quick little idea.  Please don't forget to follow my Facebook Page to keep up with all of my latest posts.

  2. Does the top coat drag the additives down when the striping tape is removed? I would be frightened it would!! It looks amazing I'm going to give it a go!! ��

    1. Good question - you need to make sure that you float the top coat across the nail with enough top coat for it not to drag. It's a lot of fun actually! Enjoy! x
