Stripes

Sometimes, when it comes to nail art, something so simple can look really effective. Stripes are a very good example of this, it is a pattern that doesn't require too much practise, but can have a variety of results depending on colour and what directions your lines go in! I used a clear base coat and then used a base colour nail varnish that I had the same colour in a nail pen, this gave me 8 colours to work with. I chose red, blue, yellow, green and purple. Of course you can use 2 completely different colours to do this, or even choose a base colour then use several colours for stripes to create a rainbow effect. I would advise if you are new to using nail art pens, to practise using the brush to create fairly straight lines on either your own nails or fake nails. Experiment with different colours and even horizontal, vertical and diagonal lines!
