Hello everyone. I hope you all had good days, mine was long!
For the new year I wanted to join a challenge or something similar for my blog, since I enjoyed the 12 Days Of Christmas Challenge so much. I recently joined Crumpet's Nail Tarts group on Facebook and saw a post on there about the Tri Polish Challenge themes for the new year so I decided to give that a go. For those of you who may not be aware of what this challenge entails, there are 3 colours set each month for the challenge. You then have to create a manicure each week using those set colours.
For January the theme is red, orange and yellow. I have chosen to use China Glaze - Hey Sailor, Essie - Fear Or Desire and Nicole by OPI - Hit The Lights.
To see what nail art I created just click below.
I had problems photographing this manicure with the design lining up so apologies for the awkward hand positions and weird photos lol.
For these nails I was inspired by this image. I started with a white base colour on all my nails.
I used a nail art brush to paint on the sun, I dragged the polishes into each other to try and blend them together. Once I was happy with this I went round the outline with W7 - Black and then filled in the background.
I freehanded my bird using a detail brush and W7 - Black again. This took a couple of attempts, I had to give him some facial reconstruction surgery because he was a bit messed up the first time around. The design looks weird when its not lined up.
I wasn't really sure what to do for my thumb, so I just did a gradient with the three challenge colours.
I was pretty bloody proud of these, I don't think my photos quite do them justice but I was happy that I managed to make it look like a bird across all my nails (at least I think it does anyway).
What do you guys think? Let me know in the comments.
Thanks for looking.
