candy cane nails

I was having a play with the nail art pens that Stargazer sent me to try out and came up with this gorgeous candy cane style look. I do have quite a steady hand but I also have the tendency to muck things up because I'm very clumsy, so I think for a first attempt at striped nails it's not too bad! It was actually really easy to do though, just apply two coats of a bright white colour like alpine snow by OPI (which is what I used) and then drag the thin nail art brush across the nail to create stripes, simples! The fuchsia colour by Stargazer which I used is so much more bright in person and looks very neon.
