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.
