Challenge 12 - Stripes

Today's challenge is Stripes. Ok so I love stripes but I haven't had much luck with them. Just really really funny with things being straight and crisp and I hadn't been able to do that with Shellac at ALL! I figured out the trick tho. If it needs two coats, as most shellac colors do, then you need to keep striping tape on after you cure it the first time. Then paint the second coat but before curing again take off the tape. Seems to get rid of the big edges but still keeps nice lines.

This is one coat of Shellac Silver (just to even out ridges), then glue and nail foil, then top coat, then apply striping tape, one coat of Overtly Onyx, cure, second coat, remove tape, cure, top coat done :)
