The Digit-al Dozen does Colors - Blue Stripes

Hey there!  For my second Digit-al Dozen Colors mani, I'm going with blue.  And to pair with my favourite color, I did my favourite nail look - stripes!  I don't know why but stripes are definitely my favourite pattern.  Unfortunately stripes are near impossible for me to stamp so I don't wear them all that often.  But a Digit-al Dozen week is worth the time it takes to use stencils so that's what I did for today.

There's really not much to say these which is a good thing.  I'm absolutely exhausted for some reason.  I keep making simple spelling mistakes in emails and texts...how embarrassing!  

Here I used Color Club Route 66 as a base color.  I thought I'd used this polish before and thought it was opaque but it took 3 coats for full coverage.  3 coats takes a long time to dry well enough to use stencils on, even with quick dry top coat.  So these look easy but they did take a fair bit of dry time.  

I used some medium sized straight nail stencils and then added stripes of OPI Super Trip-i-cali-fiji-istic and then I Saw...U Saw...We Saw...Warsaw.  To finish I used a coat of Vibrant Vinyls top coat.  

That's it for today.  I think it's time for me to go home and have some quality time with my couch since I didn't get home until almost 10 pm last night.  I definitely need a quiet night alone to recharge if I'm going to make it through the rest of the week!  

'Til next time...
