Tri-Polish Challenge – September part 3

Hi everyone!

It’s the third day for the September Tri-Polish challenge, and today I’ve done a water marble! You can see my first two Tri-Polish posts for the month here and here.

31 Day Challenge – Day 22: Inspired by a Song

Hi everyone!

Tri-polish challenge: Dots and a gradient

Hello again!

I promised you a better post today, and here it is. This is my second of four manicures for the September tri-polish challenge. Once again, the colours I used were: For blue: Tip Top Nail Chic – Blue meets Green; for pink: Top Top Nail Chic – Pot-O-Berries; and for lilac – Essence Colour & Go – Absolutely Blue. I also used Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme wear in White On.
