It's Essie Week day 4! I've never tried out traditional stripes on my nails with striping tape, but I had a vision of it working nicely with the Essie pastels I have. For these nails I painted a base of Fiji, a very subtle almost-white baby pink which is perfect for summer, then laid down my striping tape and painted over with Cascade Cool (the dusky pink), Bikini So Teeny (the cornflour-esque blue) and Mint Candy Apple (the light green). I actually think it would have looked better with a white base as the pink makes the stripes a little grubby! However, I think it looks pretty and summery and funnily enough, the green one is a perfect match for the dress I'm wearing today.
