Purple Striped Nails to Support Military Children

Hi all. Today I created a purple manicure to support children who have parents in the military. To read more on this day, click on this link.

To create this look, I painted two coats of A England Princess Sabra on three on my nails.  Princess Sabra is a lavender holographic polish which is delicate and gorgeous. On the accent nails (ring and thumb) I used two coats of Zoya Savita (an amazing matte velvet purple that Jen at My Nail Polish Obsession sent me!!). Savita is stunning and simply glows on the nail (see the pictures with flash). Then I free-handed (can't you tell by my not exactly straight lines??) a stripe with the alternating color. Last, I took Sonoma Nail Art Halloween in the Vines and put it over the stripe. Because Halloween has a tinted base, it changed the color of Princess Sabra, but I did not mind. This look was actually inspired by Jen when she posted a blue and white stripe mani in one of the Facebook groups we are in. Thanks for the inspiration.

Do you think you will try this technique? It was super quick and I finished my mani in under 15 minutes. What an easy way to create a visually interesting manicure in little time.
