Last week, OPI challenged me to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. In lieu of dumping the ice water on my head (eek... I'm chicken!), I chose to donate $100 to ALSA.org and do this nail art inspired by the ALS awareness ribbon, which is blue pinstripes on a white base.
ALS, or Lou Gehrig's Disease, is a disease that has personally impacted my life, as my grandpa passed away from a few years ago. I made my donation in his memory. If you have a moment, ALSA.org's easy-to-read summary of the disease is worth a read.
For the pinstripes, I used my new Pure Color No. 9 striper brush from Stylish Nail Art Shop. I loved using this brush for my freehand pinstripes -- it created super super thin lines. The trick was keeping a steady hand, since the thinness of the lines showed every wiggle!
