Tri-Polish Challenge: Dots and swirls

Hi everyone!

It’s Tuesday and that means it’s time for the Tri-Polish Challenge! This month’s colours are red, blue, and yellow. Last week I started off with a bang with these cute octopus nails. This week I was also inspired by another blogger – I loved these swirly nails by Adventures in Acetone and decided to be a copycat 🙂essence-wanns-be-your-sunshine-essie-lots-of-lux-sally-hansen-sugar-coat-cherry-drop-texture-dots-and-swirlsI started with a base of Essence Wanna Be Your Sunshine, one of the few yellows I have. My bottle is almost empty just from doing nail art with it! essence-wanns-be-your-sunshine-essie-lots-of-lux-sally-hansen-sugar-coat-cherry-drop-texture-dots-and-swirlsNext, I used a small nail art brush to paint swirls in Essie Lots of Lux, one of the most gorgeous textured polishes out there. Lastly, I used a dotting tool to add dots of Sally Hansen Sugar Coat in Cherry Drop. essence-wanns-be-your-sunshine-essie-lots-of-lux-sally-hansen-sugar-coat-cherry-drop-texture-dots-and-swirlsThese nails were really simple to create but they looked so fun and eye-catching – definitely a winner in my books!

    I like this a lot! Actually, I like this color combo better than the pink and purple of the original. This one stands out more, and is really summery and cheerful.

      Thanks so much! The colours did work well together. On my right hand I tried orange/green/purple and it wasn’t nearly as striking as this one 🙂

      Thanks Jessica! I really don’t think yellow suits my skin tone but together with the other colours and patterns it looks cool 🙂
