Untried Polish Challenge-In Season

Ooo, three untrieds in this mani, which of the remaining categories should I classify it into? I guess In Season is the most appropriate.
I started by laying down two coats of OPI I Think In Pink, and then dotted on the flowers using Sally Hansen White On, and then dotted the centers with China Glaze Not In This Galaxy.

I Think In Pink was part of the Pink of Hearts Duo, for 2012's breast cancer awareness campaign along with You Glitter Be Good To Me. It is a milky pink crelly. I think. If it isn't a crelly, it is a jelly. I think this is the only crelly I have, so I am not certain it truly is. Anyway. Two coats gave surprisingly good coverage.

I thought this was so pretty! I was going to keep this, but then I went back to the original plan of  jelly layers-you have probably seen them elsewhere on the internet. So I tossed another coat of ITIP over this, added more dotty flowers, and then topped with another coat of ITIP.

On this last one, I left the one flower without a coat of I Think In Pink on it, just to see the original.

I so apologize for the state of my cuticles. I have been working hard on improving them-more moisturizer, cuticle oil, and water for internal hydration. Not certain it is working yet, but I keep trying.

See what the other participants have this time! Thanks Jo!

I am on vacation now and will be leaving for a distant location Monday, so I don't know that I will get the next few installments done here, but Jo graciously said initially that we could take all the time we want, so I am taking advantage of that. I will be missing this month's Tri-Polish Challenge, or at least posting late.



  1. I love jelly polish, that looks great! Have fun on vacation!

  2. Oo, I love the idea of jelly with flowers! I must try that. Beautiful!
