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!
