UPC - Three Colors - Geometry




Happy...um...what's today, Saturday?
To me it's actually Wednesday as I'm trying to schedule ahead for the weekend!
So this is kind of like a Back to the Future post!






Back at the Untried Polish Challenge, today we're knocking out three of them with this geometric design I adapted from one of my earlier tape mani's that was a criss cross design. Instead of striping tape to make thin lines, I opted to use plain tape to offset my triangles...it seems more complicated than it was, I should probably just tell you step by step?


For this mani I used Zoya Bevin, Essence Trust In Fashion and P2 Break the Rules.

Pretty simple - I started with the light green (Zoya Bevin) - when it was dry, I taped squares askew on the top and bottom portions of each nail and then I painted one part pink and the other part dark green and was very careful to make sure the line where they met was as straight as possible.

Then the tape comes up and the topcoat goes on!

Here is also a matte version.

I super loved this mani...for the Three Color challenge I had a total different idea that didn't work out AT ALL, so I was glad when my backup plan was super successful - I call that Kismet!
