Untried Polish Challenge-Three Colors

Going back to the Three Colors of untried polishes, then I will be back on track with Jo at Just Add Polish. Even though skipping around is allowed, I feel like going along.

I changed my initial plans on this mani completely, I initially planned on using the Zang Toi Trio from Zoya, but I got inspired and did this:
I used my usual OPI Matte Nail Envy and then dotted on some pansies with Orly Royal Velvet. That is the PERFECT pansy color, blue and purple and rich and deep. SO love this color!
That's one color.
Next, I added some black stems with my striper and then picked up my fan brush. I first used OPI Nein, Nein, Nein, Okay Fine!, brushed as a grassy French, and then Julep Piper over, to lighten the grass.
That's two and three colors.
I went back and used my yellow striper for the centers .
A quick coat of  SV , hoping and praying that it wouldn't smudge, and there we go!
The thumb only got the grass, not really sold on that.
One more shot, in my car, afternoon light rather than morning:
This is a far more Spring-y mani than anything I would have come up with using the Zang Toi Trio, gorgeous colors though they are.

Take a bit to check out the other blogger's creativity.

  1. Super cute! Love the flowers. I'm never brave enough to do anything on my bare-ish nail bed like you.

  2. I love the grass as the tips, I never would have thought of that.

  3. I've said it before, I'm a sucker for flower manis. Lovely!
