I almost skipped the tri-polish challenge this month because I mistakenly thought the first posts had to be up last week and I hadn’t done anything yet. Luckily I was mistaken so I had a chance to put something together!
This month’s colours are orange, yellow and green. Not my favourite combination, but it is very Halloweeny. For the challenge, you have to use at least 2 of the 3 colours per design (and all 3 on at least one design) and you may add black, white, gold, silver, and glitter toppers. Here’s what I did:
TIGERS! So as you can see, I only used my orange and yellow for this first challenge mani – Essence colour & go in Flashy Pumpkin and Wanna be your Sunshine. I started off with Flashy Pumpkin and then added Wanna be your Sunshine on top using the cling wrap/saran wrap technique:
Once that was dry, I stamped by thumb, pinkie, and index finger using Essence Stamp me! Black and plate BM-223 for the tiger print. I then used my brand new tiger water decals from KKCenterHK on my middle and ring fingers.
I made the mistake of touching the one on my ring finger again a minute later to check if it was dry – it moved again and as I replaced it, the line near the ear got damaged. I guess it was just my inexperience with water decals because I used some others the next day and remembered to tap them dry with paper towel, and then I didn’t have any trouble. You can also obviously see some pretty big stamping blipses but that stamping is actually good for me, so I just left it as it was.
