Multi Coloured Stripes for Barry M

Hey everyone! I'm starting to feel like I have nothing to post, as the past couple of Saturdays I've been busy and not really able to do my nails. I do have a few designs but I'm not sure whether I like them much, and I also have a few christmas designs but it's too early for them to be posted! Instead, I took to trawling folders and discovered a couple of tutorials I created for Barry M this summer but completely forgot to post. So that gives me something to post at least! These were just a design I created when I was wanting to experiment a bit and I wanted colour. You can do them with or without the black stripe it's up to you but I did it for consistency! 



I unfortunately can't remember all the colours I used as these are from a while ago. The white is Barry M - Cotton, the red is Barry M - Copa Cobana, the blue is Barry M - Sky Blue and the black is acrylic paint but the rest I'm unsure of.


Step 1: Paint your nails with a white base coat, I used Barry M - Cotton
Step 2: Using a small nail art brush draw squares on the centre line of your nail in your chosen colour
Step 3: Repeat this with your next colour
Step 4: Repeat with all colours until you have a line down your nail
Step 5: Using black nail polish or acrylic paint and a striping brush draw stripes either side of your pattern
Step 6: Finish off with a topcoat to seal in your design and you're done! 

What do you think? Let me know in the comments!
