Got grapes?

I had to take one of these pictures with a flash because you couldnt really see the design but I sorta warped the colors... This was just a fast asymetrical tip design I did when I was to lazy and lacking creativity. I don't even like the color purple anyways; it's a good thing I did this particular design because my roomate caught a glimpse of these and had me do an almost identical version on her. The lighter of the purple is Nicole by OPI's "Virtuous Violet" and the darker is "Purple Pizzazz" by Sally Hansen Hard as Nails. I used my dotting tool to line the seam between the two purps. Got graaapes?


  1. I love it! How did you do the stripes? I want to try this!


  2. This design is actually really simple. I freehand painted the lighter coat from the middle of my nail to the top corner diagonally across. Then, where the dots are I painted a parallel line. Then just added the dots after. I should be doing instructional blog posts step by step, but most of my designs I just kinda make it up as I go and decide which ones make it to the blog when I'm already finished. Hope this helps!
