Plain Jane nails are fine most of the time, but the solid colors can get pretty boring after a while. Striped nails are an easy and quick nail art design to try when you want to jazz up your nail routine.
Stripes running down the length of the nails can create the illusion of a little extra length. This is the more popular option when it comes to striped nail art. However. horizontal stripes—running across the nails—are also becoming a little more popular these days. The width of the stripes, from thin to thick, is a matter of personal preference. You can even vary the width of the stripes for a more unique look.
