Tri Polish Challenge September 2013 - Manicure 2

Greetings All!

I think this month's colour choices are probably my favourite yet. I was originally going to use all pastels, but I've had problems before with light blue and lilac looking too similar. I'm really enjoying these three polishes together though.

Here is a reminder of the polishes I'm using to represent lilac, pink and blue.


Essie Lights, Barry M Gelly in Prickly Pear and Sally Hansen Model Behaviour.

I'm also happy with how all four manicures 'match' - I could use them all in a skittle, and it wouldn't look too weird!





I really want to practice my pinstripe nails, as I love the look of them! The technique itself is easy enough, if a bit fiddly. What I need to practice more is getting the lines all completely even and straight. These aren't perfect, but it's only the second time I've tried pinstripe, so I'm not too annoyed at myself!

I also wanted to mention that next week I'll be taking part in another challenge! The Crumpet's 33DC will be running three days a week for the next 11 weeks, starting on Monday! If you want to join in with this or the TPC, you can do so here.

Here's a little look at the challenge themes!


There are some really interesting themes, although some I'll probably struggle with!

      Although it isn't perfect, I'm fairly happy with how it turned out.

  2. your lines are great! those 3 polishes look great together! I'm wanting to attempt the 33DC, but I'm seriously doubting I could pull it off :/ I know heaps of people have already started.. and are already like half way through with posts ready to go! All I've done is written down the themes lol!

      I'm sure you could pull it off! I'm only prepping a few this weekend. It's only three a week, so I should be able to keep up (fingers crossed!)

  3. Really cute! I think lines're pretty even, more even than I can get so...hehehe. Really like the colors, I think's a perfect match. We're partners at the TPC so I'll stay tuned for your news. And we're partners at the 33DC too, so we're gonna get crazy!!!!
    A big hug,
    Natalia.
