Crumpet's Nail Tarts Present The April Tri-Polish Challenge

So here we are again for the Tri-Polish Challenge hosted by The Crumpet.  I'm gonna be honest.  I almost forgot about the challenge.  I didn't even realize it was the 3rd week of April already.  Gosh!  How time flies!

The colors for April are pink, orange, and turquoise.  I chose Zoya Kimber (pink), popBeauty Ablaze (orange), and Zoya Zuza (turquoise).  I'm totally loving my color combo so I can't wait to get the rest of these manis done.
This is my favorite mani I've done in a long time.  I usually get really excited about my gradients...when they come out good anyway.  This one came out amazing.
First I did the gradient on all my nails and then used some striping tape to create a lazer effect or I guess more of a starburst.  Then I used a thick coat of Zuza to try and cover the gradient.  You can still see some bald spots, but whatever.  I also didn't want to cover it up completely so I thought a cross print would be fun on my middle and pointer fingers.
I really love the contrast of the colors and how the crosses seem to jump off the nail.  Super cool!  Now I can't wait to brainstorm my next Tri-Polish mani for Thursday.


  1. It DID come out amazing! How did you do the crosses?

    1. thank you so much! i just free handed the crosses with a short skinny nail art brush.
