January Tri Polish Challenge: Red, Yellow and Orange.

Good morning everyone. A nice early post from me today as I am feeling organised :).

It's the final day of January's Tri Polish Challenge, if you missed my first three posts you can see them herehere and here

I had big ambitions for this design.. it didn't turn out exactly as I had planned in my head, but I was still pretty proud of these ones.

If you want to see what I created carry on reading after the jump.

I was inspired by this image for this design. Yes, that is a lion made of fire!

Yeah, not exactly like my inspiration but I think I am probably just being picky :P. I started with a base of W7 - Black on all my nails.

I freehanded my lion using China Glaze - Hey Sailor, Essie - Fear or Desire and Nicole by OPI - Hit The Lights

I added some stripes to my pinky, middle finger and thumb using the same three polishes and a striping brush.

So maybe not exactly like the photo I was inspired by, but I was still pretty happy with these. I think you can tell that this is supposed to be a lion and the colours are reminiscent of fire. 

What do you guys think? Let me know in the comments.

Thanks for looking.

  2. Wowzers! This is incredible, I love it. And it certainly does look like a lion - he just doesn't look too happy! Although he is on fire, so that figures :D x

    1. Thank you :). Haha, yeah I don't think I'd be smiling if I was on fire either.
