This time last year, a co-worker took me to get a mani/pedi for my birthday. At the time, I knew NOTHING of nail art or nail polish since I didn't start until early this year. Well, I wanted something festive and when the lady asked me what I wanted I said "candy cane french tip". Needless to say she looked at me with the strangest, most confused look. I repeated and told her, "diagonal white stripes, like candy canes." She continues to look at me and says, "Zebra?". Me: "No, candy canes, just some stripes like this" as I make a diagonal gesture on my nails. She said ok and I walked out of there with some funky horizontal nails :/
Anyway, because of that I wanted to make what I wanted at that time and here it is!
And just in case you'd like to watch, here's the tutorial video :)
