Repeat Stripes

Hello Lovely Ladies,

Yesterday was a Statutory holiday: Family Day- it is day off from school and work for families to have an opportunity to spend the day together.Β  It is unfortunate that our lives have gotten so hectic that an annual Family Day had to be put in place BUT, I value what it is trying to inspire in our busy lives and I sure enjoyed my day with Peter and the kids.

Today’s post is kind of a deja-vu of THIS post that I did a few weeks back.Β  I liked that technique and look so much that I really wanted to give Dandy Nails Moonglow another opportunity to shine πŸ˜‰

Yes… I really wanted to do the striped look again *guilty as charged* and I knew that it wouldn’t be the same without the super pretty metallic/shimmery Dandy Nails Moonglow. At the risk of being redundant, I hope you see it as a spotlight on a different color combo rather than a lack of originality πŸ˜‰

My pinky and pointer finger are two coats of Barielle One Shade of Grey (for those of you who have read the “50 Shades” series, I know you can see the humor in this polish name).Β  The thumb and stripes are both done with China Glaze Kinetic Candy.

I hope you don’t mind that the technique I used so recently was repeated in this post.Β  I am optimistic that this look was ‘different enough’ πŸ˜‰Β  I really do like this technique and this may not be the last time you see it on my blog πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

Is there a look/technique that YOU just can’t get enough of (that you want to try in a different color combo etc)?


  • This combo is fantastic! I think I prefer this blue (especially as the stripes)

    • Thank you! I’m so glad you like it! πŸ˜€

  • I didn’t even notice at first glance its the same. I LOVE both looks ! I loved the pink girly look, but I LOVE this look with the blue just as much ! Still have to give this technique a whirl β™₯

    • Awh, yaaay- that means I changed it enough that it wasn’t too obvious πŸ˜‰
      It is a really neat technique- easy to carry out and quite pretty on the nail (almost casts this glow/shadow look)

  • I loveeee this look! You may repeat is as often as you wish. I’ll keep liking it.

    • LOL πŸ˜€ Thank you SO much. I enjoy sharing the manicures that I liked wearing- and I happened to wear this technique twice in a very short time πŸ˜‰ lol

  • Lou is Perfectly Polished

    It’s a great look Marta. Glad you had a lovely family day xx

    • Thank you SO much. It was really nice to spend the day together- Peter did have to pack for his trip to California, but that did not impede on our relaxing day

  • Kayla Angus

    Great look. This is fun with the stripes and I think I perfer the blue as well

    • That seems to be the consensus – the blue trumps the pink πŸ˜€ Glad you ladies don’t mind the same technique being shown in such a short time

  • Stacy Plowman-Pennock

    Seriously Marta, if you don’t stop posting such GORGEOUS manicures that make me NEED these polishes I’m going to have to take my eyeballs elsewhere, my pocketbook can’t take it!! LOL

    • I read your comment this morning, and now again as I’m replying and it has me in stitches laughing. Thank you for such a sweet compliment. I hope your eyeballs stick around πŸ˜‰ lol

      • Stacy Plowman-Pennock

        I’m glad I made you giggle and I promise, my eyeballs aren’t going anywhere!

  • I really keep loving your stripes ! πŸ™‚ And the colors you used really match perfectly ! This grey is beautiful !

    • Thank you! I really enjoy a polish that is a pleasure to apply- that way the fun is both in painting my nails and in wearing them. These grey shades both are a real treat to work with

  • adorable πŸ™‚ The technique is very creative..

    • Thank you. The technique I spotted on Instagram first but I have to say that it a lovely one (which would explain why I have done it twice already lol)…

  • I love this!! I loved when you did it with the pink stripes too! But this look looks more like something I will re-create! The blue/grey/silver combi is gorgeous πŸ™‚

    • Awwww, I’m so glad you like this. The technique is really fun (I have seen it in a nude and black combo and really liked it also :D)

  • I love it in this color combo!

    • Thank you πŸ˜€ It seems that this is the winning combo (over the grey and pink).

  • Erika

    I loveeeee your nails!!! you are really talented!!!

    • Thank you VERY much. I’m very happy to hear that you like this look

  • PolishMad

    • I hope you do!!!! Tag me please πŸ˜‰ (I want to see)
