Nail art - Double sandy lines

This would have worked really well name wise if it was double yellow lines, but as yellow nail varnish very rarely looks good with my skin tone I don't actually have any. I was then going to go with double white lines but my go to off-white base colour for nail art has come to the end of it's now very gloopy life, so I couldn't do that either. So I pulled out my trusty OPI Sand in my suit (which I've had for years and it's still pretty much perfect) and ended up having to go for double sandy lines!

I really need to branch out with my nail art techniques as again I've used stripping tape for this one. I started with a base coat followed by a couple of coats of Sand in my suit. OPI shades can often be one coat wonders but as this is quite a light, thin shade it does need two coats. I then applied two strips of stripping tape across the nail to make the lines and painted over the top with Barry M Silk in Orchid. I then pulled the strips off while the nail varnish was still wet and sealed with a top coat once dry. Orchid is also quite a thin shade and in the photos you can see through it slightly, but you can't see this on my nails. 

What do you think of double sandy lines?

    1. Thank you. Yes I thought that after I'd done it. Sand in my suit is actually really similar to my skin tone so it doesn't really look like I'm wearing anything underneath Orchid. I really must use Orchid more often it's an amazing colour x
