Horizontal Stripe Mani with OPI Barefoot in Barcelona, Essie Smokin Hot and Essie Trophy Wife

Hello there lovelies! Today I have a super fun mani to show you! I was inspired when I saw a similar mani with a horizontal stripe in the middle and decided to give it a twist!

I started off with two coats of OPI Barefoot in Barcelona on the entire nail. I then alternated nails using Essie Smokin' Hot and painted just half the nail. It didn't matter if the line wasn't perfect because I knew I'd be going over it again! Then, using a nail art brush, I painted 1-2 coats of Essie Trophy Wife across the middle. I painted the line just thick enough to cover the line of polish in between. I thought this was so simple and it looks very classy! I actually think it also makes me nails look longer! 

Have you ever tried a mani like this?
