Untried Challenge Number 3: Three Colors

Hey everyone. Today's mani has got me super bummed. There is so much polish on my nails it looks like I've got short, stubby acrylics! But I decided to go with it anyway. Can't have everything right, can we. =(


This challenge is to use 3 untried colors. I also decided to do another design I've never done. Clouds!!!

My apologies to those with brighter/ higher contrast monitors. The pink looks great on my lappie, and my phone, but is REALLY blinding at work. Hope it looks ok for you! =)



 
 This is Orly Fowl Play, China Glaze Pink-ie Promise, and Venique Sugar on Hi-Platforms. The Fowl Play was the WORST idea for a base. It looks so darn good in the bottle, but is far too sheer. I had to have 3 coats minimum for it to be opaque enough. That with the two other colors for clouds. I should have stopped while I was ahead, but eh. You can see in the pics how much polish is on my sad little nails. =(

BUT, The design is just fine, and the colors(mostly) are lovely. Are you digging that bright pink? Stay tuned for some more Venique swatches from the Sweet Little Addictions collection!!!

(Wow, look, I'm not even complaining about my pics today! =D)

  1. Fowl Play is kind of a jerk, but what a cool idea to pair ot with that neon pink! I love this, such an original duo!

  2. Fowl Play does best over a black base. It looks really awesome and the black gives it the dark color that it needs underneath.

    I think your clouds and colors are so pretty. Great job!!

  5. Fowl Play's lovely - I'd happily apply seven coats if need be, if I could only get my hands on a bottle lol. Your cloud design looks great, I found it much harder than it looks when I had a go at it!
