Laser Stripe Pink and Purple Tape Mani

Annie and I had a much-needed manicure night where we had a chance to catch up and watch some "True Blood" -- our latest obsession. She wanted professional-looking nails, so we did a basic French manicure using OPI In The Spotlight Pink and my white It's So Easy Nails Stripe Rite polish. I didn't take any photos, but it looked great!

Meanwhile, I wanted to do something quick and simple. I started with two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, since I wasn't quite sure what my plan was. I dug around in my manicure case and found a purple striping brush that I haven't used for awhile, so I opted for an easy design.
I was going to continue with the design to make a tribal print, but really liked the clean look of the white base with minimal design.
The white looks pretty good in photos, but my polish is actually getting really thick. I've found that with older polishes, It helps to wait longer in between coats, as there usually ends up being thicker layers of polish on the nails -- waiting is not something that I'm very good at, so you might see the polish thinned in a few spots.
