Tri-Polish Challenge-June #1

Third Tuesday of June, so it is time for the first of this month's Tri-Polish Challenge manicures.
Basic Rules of this challenge:
  • Three colors selected by and posted on The Crumpet's Facebook page.
  • Select a polish to represent each of those colors.
  • Do four manicures, at least one using all three colors, and all of them using at least two of the colors.
  • You can also use black, white, silver, gold, and glitter topcoats.
  • Post the manis on your blog or straight to the Nail Tarts FB page and link up using Inlinkz.
  • Profit. 
OK, maybe not profit.

This month the colors are Red, Purple, and Pink. Here are my polishes:
 That there is Zoya Isla (my tip top favorite red!), Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Orchid Express, and Orly Rose Radiance.
 Full sunlight
Today, I am only using two, the purple and the red, along with my silver striper and tape as a tool. This is so simple and graphic, I love it!
Even fuller sunlight
This mani succumbed to my inability to stop when I am ahead.
I thought it would be cool to make pyramids on either side of the stripe, don't ask me why. But when it got this far, I realized I wouldn't be able to do that.
Inside, indirect sunlight
Oh, well. In other colors, this would have been a cool football or baseball or patchwork manicure.
Take a look at the other Tarts and their manicures-pretty much bound to be better than this. Better luck next time, Lizajane!



  1. I hate when I have an idea in my head that doesn't translate onto the nail. *sadpanda* I do love it with just the stripe though!

  2. It happens with me all the time, the way I imagine my mani is totally different the way it comes out.......
