I love all the details of this 17th-century farmhouse, which sits on the border of Umbria and Tuscany in central Italy. Hand painted murals, vintage designer fabrics, antique hardware and unique touches make up the charm and lived in comfort of the 10,000 square foot retreat. And that black and white tub?! Invite me over for a soak, won’t you?
After spotting these gold striped nails on jewelry designer Anna Sheffield‘s Instagram, I knew I had to recreate it. All it took was a little bit of research online, where I discovered something called nail striping tape, which is the key to masking off the perfect geometric nail art and creating metallic lines without using polish. Have I been living under a rock?! The stuff is so easy to work with – just add top coat – and super cheap – about $2 for 10 rolls of multi-colored metallic tape that should last you a lifetime. This will be how I’ll be dressing up my nails this summer!
- gold nail striping tape 1/64″
