Nail Polish Bloggers Challenge, Day 5: Hard Rock Candy Cane

Light pink is not my favorite color, so I tried to do a look with this that would make it a little bit more edgy and would show less of the pink base. This what I came up with:

Licht roze is niet mijn favoriete kleur, dus ik wilde deze keer iets doen waardoor het er wat stoerder uit zou zien en waarbij je wat minder zou zien van de roze basis. En dit is wat ik bedacht heb:
First I painted my nails pink and allowed it to dry completely. Then I used stripingtape to get the sripes and didn't cut the stripes off at the edges so removing them would be easier. After that I applied the black polish and carefully removed the stripingtape as soon as possible. Topped it off with a nice thick coat of topcoat and it was done.

Allereerst heb ik natuurlijk mijn nagels roze gelakt en heb het goed laten drogen. Daarna heb ik stripingtape gebruikt en de uiteinden niet afgeknipt zodat ik de streepjes er makkelijk vanaf kon halen. Daarna dik laagje zwarte lak er overheen en direct voorzichtig die tripingtape eraf geplukt. Laagje topcoat erover en het was klaar.
It was a bit of a chore to get al the stripes on neatly so I doubt if I will ever do all 10 nails like this, but it is a great way do an accent nail or maybe all 10 nails with a little less stripes on them.

het was wel even een klusje on alle streepjes er keurig op te krijgen, dus ik betwijfel of ik ooit alle 10 nagels zo zou doen, maar het is wel een leuk idee om op deze manier een accentnagel te doen of alle 10 de nagels met wat minder streepjes.
The black polish has tiny holographic glitters in it, it's really pretty. I bought it many years ago, but it still works great! It's even better than in the beginning because it's more opaque now.
De zwarte lak heeft piepkleine holografische glittertjes erin, het is erg mooi. Ik heb deze echt al jaren geleden gekocht, maar het is nog steeds goed. Het is misschien zelfs wel beter dan in het begin omdat het nu beter dekt.
It's friday now and I just came home from work. It was a long and busy week so I'm going to relax a bit tonight, watch tv, drink some wine and polish my nails. I have no clue what color I shall paint them, but I have ALOT of untrieds to hoose from. I think Friday is my favourite day of the week.

Het is nu vrijdag en ik ben net thuis van werk. Het was een lange en drukke week dus ik ga lekker relaxen vanavond, beetje tv kijken, win drinken en nageltjes lakken. Ik heb geen idee welke kleur in mn nagels ga doen, maar ik heb VEEL ongebruikte lakjes om uit te kiezen. Ik denk dat vrijdag mn favoriete dag van de week is.
