Geometric Manicure

Howdy, everyone!  I have a quick manicure for you all today.  I had limited access to polish while I was back in Kansas this weekend, but my flight yesterday was cancelled and I had an extra night with nothing to do, so I decided to give it a go with what I had. (I did make it back to Chicago today, in case you were wondering)  As usual when I take a trip home, I had to run out to Walmart to grab a couple of things.  We don't really have Walmarts in Chicago, so I never get a chance to buy any Pure Ice or NYC polishes unless I'm home.  I admit, I did take an unnecessary turn around the cosmetic department while I was there and I picked up a few things.  Here's what I did with a couple of them!

I started here with 3 coats of NYC 153 Midtown Mimosa, a bright yellow jelly.  Then, I used blue painter's tape (thanks to my stepmom, Sherrie!) to tape off some elongated triangle shapes.  I used NYC 152 Tudor City Teal to fill in the triangles.  TCT is a pretty turquoise color, I'm sure it's supposed to be a creme, but it does seem more like a jelly to me.  In any case, you can tell it's sheer because the color looks more green here due to the yellow showing through.  It doesn't bother me, I enjoy happy surprises like that.

I'm pretty pleased with how this turned out, even though my boyfriend hates it lol  It's hard to  get those triangles centered with tape and I think I did a pretty good job, darnit!  What do you guys think?

Keep an eye out for my next ABC Challenge post which should be coming up shortly.  As always, thanks for reading!


  1. I love the color combo, nice and cheery mani!

  2. Thanks, Jenni! My boyfriend HATED this combo...still can't figure out why. I thought it was summer-y! Oh well, what do boys know, anyway? :)
