It's time for another Tri Polish Challenge! I'm excited about this month's - I've already prepped all my manicures,and I'm really happy with all of them! I'm also trying to be as concise as possible with the rules, as although they aren't complicated, they can get a little...wordy. So here goes!
- 3 colours
- 1 polish to represent each colour
- 4 manicures
- Use at least 2 colours for each manicure
- Use all 3 colours for at least one manicure
- Free use of black, white, gold, silver and glitter
If you want to join in (I highly recommend it!), you have to be a Crumpet's Nail Tart. You can become one HERE.
The colours for this month are blue, grey and red. Here are the polishes I have chosen:
They are: Sally Hansen Salon Manicure in Thinking of Blue, Asda Witchcraft, and OPI The Thrill of Brazil.
As soon as I read the colours, I knew I wanted to use fairly dark, muted colours. I also had several ideas for what to do with them (none of which I used in the end!). This month I made sure I included a polish I could stamp with - it just gives you so many more options to work with! I guess I could stamp with black or white, but this month I have used all 3 polishes for each manicure, and nothing else. I'm like a tri polish purist lol. It's just an extra little challenge I give myself.
On to today's nails. I'm rather happy with them (like all this month's TPC nails!)
I started with a base of WItchcraft, then I did a coat of Thinking of Blue and used cling film to remove some of the polish. I then stamped with The Thrill of Brazil and plate BM323. I was really impressed with TTOB - she's a great stamping polish, but I wasn't sure how she would do over such a dark blue - I wouldn't try stamping her over black, for example. That's just mean. She did really well! (Is it weird that I'm anthropomorphising a polish?). I figured that in the pictures at least, you would be able to see the stamping even if it was a bit rubbish, but these worked in real life and everything!
I'm loving these darker colours together - they give quite a 'grown up' look, and I love the stamping over the mottled base.
There will be another TPC manicure on Thursday, until then make sure to check out everyone else's!
