Trapped in hell (nail tutorial)

So this week I did something a little more 'arty'.
I named it 'trapped in hell' because the background colours kind of remind me of fire and then the use of stripes on top just remind me of being caged in.

Nail polishes used (left to right:)
Rimmel Matte Finish polish
Art Club NA71 Gold Hologram
Art Club NA66 Rio de Oro
Kiko 279
Kiko 280
Barry M 303 Bright Purple
China Glaze 995 Brownstone

1. First start with your base colour, the darkest one and just paint on the bottom of your nail.

2. Layer the lighter colours towards the tip of your nails.

3. Using your sponging tool blend the colours together.

4. Wait for your nails to dry, the paint the stripes on top.

5. I found that a matt top coat looks really good!

Simple stripe.

Went for something simplistic this week, used American Apparel's Butter 
and a nail art pen bought from Ebay.
Loving the American Apparel butter colour at the moment. 
It's the perfect type of pastel, far better than Barry M's Ice Cream Yellow.
