Tri Polish Tuesdays - April's Glitter Bomb!

Hello everyone! Today is the last day using April's Tri Polish Challenge colours of yellow, pink and blue. I've already done a couple of manis including all three colours so I settled for two today.

I decided that a ton of glitter with some negative space was the way forward (obviously!), so I freehanded sections of Orly Pink Waterfall and OPI Can't Find My Czechbook (you can probably tell fro my choice of polish that glitter wasn't originally in the plan - I wouldn't normally use Orly or OPI as base colours for glitter!). I outlined the sections in black and sat back thinking it just needed a little bit of something extra. I decided that was a coat of L-A Glitter Nails Peacock over the OPI. The I sat back again and decided that it needed some L-A Glitter Nails Grape over the Orly. Once I'd done that I was happy (mostly because there was nowhere else for me to add glitter!), and finished with Seche Vite.

Here's a quick pic before I added the Grape glitter:

So that wraps up the April installment of the Tri Polish Challenge. The colours for May are red, green and purple, so there's a whole new palette to play with kicking off next Tuesday!

  1. OMG, this design is unique and very original. love everything about it! I've browsed a little bit your blog and you have great designs!

  2. Oh is so sparkley! My brain keeps trying to make the negative space into letters though! Optical illusion or tired brain? You be the judge.

    1. Hahaha! I used to do that in my tattoo work - to the point where my OH thinks I've put something rude in one of his... ;)
