Red and white stripes

Looking back to previous posts makes me realize that I don't wear striped clothes that often. It's not that I don't like stripes, it's just that - for some unknown reason - I don't own a lot of striped items. Anyway, I recently rediscovered this skirt in my closet and I decided to wear it last weekend. To create a clean look I used white nailpolish, which is actually no more than one shade of my french manicure set. It's the first time I tried white nails and I can tell you I don't want my nails to be another color anymore (that's a slight exaggeration, but I'm sure you'll understand my point of view). I always thought it would look scary (no judgement about my kind of strange ideas about the world please, haha) but nothing is less truth. Soooo.. if you've got any recommendations about a brand that sells a long-lasting white nailpolish, please tell me. :)
