Lazy Days of Summer- Favorite Beach Towel

Hi everyone! Sorry for posting two LDoS challenges in a row! I was just to excited for this one because I LOVE how it turned out! Todays challenge is ment to be inspired by your favorite beach towel. The towel I chose has zebra stripes accented with multicolored stripes. I was hesitant because I've never free handed stripes and at the moment my nails are quite short. I didn't want it to turn into a jumbled mess. I seriously love the way this turned out though! I didn't even want to take it off. This might be a favorite mani I've done in quite awhile.

The base color is Maybelline- Porcelain Party. Definitely not the best white. Don't wast your money on it. I think I did about four coats. I used a random black striper polish along with Essie- Van D'Go and Play Date with Zoya- Shelby and Wednesday. I just used a thin striper brush for the colors. I wish I had taken a picture with my towel but alas, I did not. Totally my favorite challenge so far! I'm very proud of myself because it turned out so pretty! This is one of those mani's where you need to let everything dry before you top coat it or it will be smudge central.
