Crumpets Nail Tarts - July Tri-Polish Challenge - Day 2
Thursday, 18 July 2013
Hello! It's day two of this months tri-polish challenge, hosted by the fabulous Debbie Crumpet! The idea behind this challenge is that three colours are chosen for that month, and you have to pick a polish from your stash for each colour, and stick to those specific polishes for the challenge, which involves four manicures, posted the last two Tuesdays and Thursdays of the month. (You also have free use of black/white/silver/ gold and glitter toppers).
So, the colours for this month are BLUE, BLUE and GREEN. I have chosen Barry M Blue Grape and Guava as my blues, and Barry M Key Lime as my green. I love these colours, they are so bright and summery!
So for my first manicure, I created a bit of a polka dot explosion, and today I'm all about the gradients and striping tape. I started with a white base, then added different length vertical stripes onto my nails with striping tape. I then sponged the three colours over the top at different angles. I really love this effect, I think the blues and green contrast really nicely with the white.
