For the base color I used OPI Road House Blues which is a deep purple/blue creme. This color is so in between purple and blue there is no way to describe it other than Blurple.
For the stripes I taped off both sides of the nail and painted down the middle of the nail with Pure Ice- Get Low. Get Low is one of Pure Ice's new colors, though I do think it looks almost exactly like the gold they released for Chinese new year last year. It is a beautiful orange gold foil and it covers very well. All the racing stripes are one coat of Get Low and you can't even see the base color through it at all.
What do you think? Do you like the racing stripes? Comment below and let me know. I absolutely LOVE hearing your feedback and great news... I took off the pesky word verification so no more ouchy eyes when trying to leave a comment.
