31 Day Nail Polish Challenge: Day 12

Hey guys! Today it's stripes, and ANOTHER bloody bad daylight day.

Today, I had an epiphany. Stripes are HARD. I really wanted to do something with Essence's Choose Me (below)because I hadn't used it yet, but the black just wouldn't take to it properly, it kept leaking and peeling!

 I tried with both a thin and thick brush, but it didn't turn out great, as you can see:

The main reason I got the Essence polish was because I've recently discovered that it's a bang-on dupe for one of my wish-list polishes, Zoya Charla. You can see the comparison below, courtesy of

I got so annoyed with it that I took the whole lot off and started again, this time with a no-name silver matte polish from Claire's and a random black.

It's still a bit wonky, and it STILL leaked, but to be honest lads n lasses I couldn't face doing it a third time! I think this is something I'm going to practice in the meantime, and maybe return to it towards the end of the challenge when I can incorporate it into one of the "Inspired By" challenges.

Sorry for the let-down this time folks, but onwards and upwards for tomorrow - animal print!
