Pink Paint Strips

I saw this on Instagram a little while ago, but I can't for the life of me remember who the artist was. If you saw this too please let us know so we can credit them!

The look popped back into my mind when I was looking for a simple and quick nail design. I've been looking at paint colours a lot recently as I my boyfriend and I are just about to buy our first home together, eek! I've always thought paint strips were really pretty as I love the different shades all together. 

To create this design I started with a white base, it was a bit of a rookie error only using one coat, but I was in a rush! I then added a couple of pieces of striping tape to each nail. I added a different Barry M pink to each segment - Pink Flamingo at the base, then Strawberry Ice Cream and finally Rosehip* at the tip. The Rosehip* is very pale so doesn't stand out that well against the white line unfortunately.

For something so quick and simple to do I was really impressed with how these came out. What colour paint stripes would you choose?




  1. Looks really cute! It immediately made my think of those paint strips too haha! Buying a house, that sounds so exciting! (and a bit scary and all grown up too) Good luck! :)

  2. These are so cute! You must be so excited about buying a house! I think I'd choose either purple or blue paint stripes! :)
