Pippa has been somewhat neglected this challenge. Probably because the other two are just so gorgeous, and yellow is hard to whip into shape. So I decided to try the reciprocal gradient again, this time with higher contrast colors.
I have to say, I like this much better than the other day's.
Only problem, for me, is that I live in Green Bay Packer country, and I just can't see this color combination without thinking of them. And I usually don't start thinking of them until the pre-season is over.
So check out the rest of the Nail Tart's designs by following the links below.
See you next month.

My hot polishes for this month's Tri-Polish Challenge are A. England BriarRose, Zoya Pippa, and A. England Dragon.
I have loved the Reciprocal Gradient since I first saw it this spring, so I was looking forward to trying this.
Maybe next time I will use more contrasting colors. These are too close in value.
After some half-hearted cleanup, I topped it off with Seche Vite.
Next time will be better. And there WILL be a next time. This isn't as clean as I would want. Next time I think I will use just a small piece of sponge and dab them on separately. That will make for better color saturation and more precise application.
I wonder what the other Tarts are doing today. Let's take a look in the links below.

Except for my right thumb which got a barbed wire.
Look at what the other Tarts are doing with these colors, we are always so creative!
