Rasta Stripes

Hey loves! Today I'll be going to Island Reggae Festival at Great America so of course I had to do some Rasta nails! I was so tempted to do a gradient, but I did a red/yellow/green gradient just a few weeks ago so I wanted to do something new. I was inspired by NailStories and CoewlessPolish for this design. I used China Glaze Hey Sailor, China Glaze Happy Go Lucky, and China Glaze Gaga for Green to make 3 stripes for my base. After it was completely dry, I placed striping tape in random patterns on my nails and then used OPI Black Onyx. I did each nail one by one so I could remove the tape right away. I really like this look. Even though cutting and placing the tape was kind of tedious for me, I will be giving this another try!

    1. Thanks! It was tempting to do the simple stripes, but I knew more little ones would show the colors underneath better.
