Freehand Green and Tan Striped Nails

Freehand striped nails by @unitedinbeauty
Today I've got a quick post for you with some fun green, black, white and tan striped nail art. These were done completely freehand using a set of very thin nail art brushes that I picked up from my local Hobby Lobby, but in retrospect I really wish I would have used some striping tape. It probably would have cut my time in half and I would have gotten much crisper lines. I guess what they say is true, hindsight is 20/20!

  1. They look so neat for freehanded stripes! I only have really narrow striping tape. Would you use multiple pieces to create a manicure like this with thicker lines?

  2. Thanks, Eva! You are absolutely right, if you are using the thin striping tape you would just use a few pieces side by side to create a thicker line. If you recreate something like this, don't forget to use #HeyUnitedinBeauty so I can check it out! I'd love to see what you do! :)
