Needle Drag – Tri-polish challenge October part 2

Hi ladies!

Today is the second Tri-polish challenge day for October. This month’s colours are yellow, green and orange.

needle drag using essence colour & go flashy pumpkin, wanna be your sunshine, and we rock the greenAnd that’s what I did! My first ever needle drag! This is one of those techniques that for some reason, I didn’t think I’d like, so I put off trying it for ages. Now that I’ve tried it, I just might be hooked! It’s amazingly easy and makes some really pretty nail art!

needle drag using essence colour & go flashy pumpkin, wanna be your sunshine, and we rock the greenI started off with a coat of my yellow, Essence Colour & Go Wanna Be Your Sunshine. Once it was dry, I added a thick stripe of each colour, Wanna Be Your Sunshine in the middle with Flashy Pumpkin and We Rock the Green down each side. I then took a toothpick and dragged the colours back and forth through each other. needle drag using essence colour & go flashy pumpkin, wanna be your sunshine, and we rock the greenIt might not be mind-blowingly amazing, but considering how quick and easy it was, I really liked this technique. needle drag using essence colour & go flashy pumpkin, wanna be your sunshine, and we rock the greenWhat do you think of needle drags?

    I love it. I think the shades of green, yellow and orange you chose look amazing. This is something I have never tried because I am not sure if I can 😛
    Gorgeous.

      Thank you! Well I still only have 1 yellow and about 4 oranges so the green was the only one I really had to choose, haha 🙂 You should definitely try it, I was anticipating a disaster but instead I was done in about 5 mins 🙂
