Less May Have Been More

Not that I'm unhappy with the finished product, but I took a pic halfway through & that looked pretty good too. I used Nubar Black Chrome for my base color, then used China Glaze 2Nite & Color Club Worth The Risque for the design. Here's the finished product:

BUT, here it is with just the 2Nite:

I guess it's a matter of just exactly how much bling you want =) Like I said, not unhappy, but tempted to do a mani specifically to use the more conservative design. So what do you guys think? Leave a comment & let me know which you prefer =) Thanks for reading.



  1. Wow!!! I love them both, and I wouldn't blame you for wanting to do another one for the more conservative look too. But that last one...just wow! Gorgeous! :-)

  2. i really like both looks, but yeah i have to agree, if you do it again i would stop at just the first level of stripes :) but the all out stripes are pretty ballin' so work it mami!

  3. This is very beautiful manicure, i like ti very much, and perfectly fit your nail size and shape.
    And i think that more lines looks more complete and i like it much betetr then less stripes

  4. wow! again, you are really good at that stripe design.
    while both pictures look really good, I have to admit I tend to prefer the one with less stripes but I also know that if it had been me I would have been VERY tempted to add another layer of stripes, just like you did ^_^

  5. I am going to have to throw my vote in with everyone else. And I was so sure I was going to be in the minority! But I think this is a great example of "less is more" - I get more impact with the more conservative mani :)

  6. Hi Hun
    you have been tagged with the
    'Honest Scrap Tag'
    Check out my blog to read my honest
    scrap and see how to complete
    your honest scarp
    take care hun =D

  7. Dang - you have skills with that stripe-er- I looove them both!

    I think the midway photo shows so much more contrast in color & the holo and perfect striping would be more apparent!

    very pretty both ways............

  8. It's hard to tell, really. I looooove both of them.

  9. I love the all out stipey one. Just a gorgeous design. You really do nice nail designs. The other is pretty also. Just do whatever fits the situation.

  10. so cute! i do like the second look better though. or i guess its the first look before you added more! :)

  11. I like both of these, super dramatic.

  12. JAMIE - Thank you =)

    KELLIGONZO - I almost did it for my next mani LOL, but I didn't have time to do the nail art & chose another look =)

    LISA - Thank you =)

    CHOCADDICT - I wanted to go with my original plan, and kept repeating to myself that I'd have plenty of opportunity to try the other way.

    NIVIPA - Thank you =)

    NAILZ - Thank you, I'll check it out =)

    DEEZ - I agree, in the final version it's hard to see the underlying lines are blue, it was another reason I liked the partial version.

    NESSA - Thanks =)

    LUCY - Thank you =)

    BEATRIZ - LOL & thanks =)

    CLOCKWORK - Thank you =)
