I am really excited to launch this challenge with my good friend Ashley from Smashley Sparkles. It's the type of nail challenge I'm more drawn to now - short and loose!
The Tri Polish Challenge involves picking 3 specific polishes for 4 challenge manis. You are also allowed free use of white, black, gold and silver. You can stamp and you can use glitter toppers, and the themes are free for all - whatever floats your boat!
Unfortunately Ashley chose 2 of my most loathed colours in green and coral, (although she did pick purple too). Here's what I'll be using in the 4 manis - OPI Thanks a Windmillion (green), Call Me Gwen-Ever (coral), and Vant To Bite My Neck (purple) from the new Euro Centrale Collection.
I'd had this crazy leopard print idea for a couple of weeks, but never in a million years did I think it would look so GOOD! Definitely a nail art high point!
The highlight was Beth not commenting on it, but just holding out her paw to me and looking at it, and then at me, as if it say "come on then, it's actually good, I'll have some of that". Bless her.
I started with a small-to-medium dotting tool, making my random splodges, and then used a small dotting tool to colour some of the edging in, in black.
This may look intricate, but it's the total opposite - super easy :)
Don't forget to check out the rest of Crumpet's Nail Tarts, and we'll all be back on Thursday with Mani No 2 !! :) xx
