I think my favorite designs are the ones that looks simple. Rather than do a full striped mani, I wanted to do something a little more modern and different.
Colors used: Essie Blanc, China Glaze Highlight of My Summer and Too Yacht to Handle and Essie In the Cab-ana.
First paint your nails white, then all you have to do is tape over your nails and to a gradient. Easy, right? Love how well these colors blended together.
