When in doubt, TRI - polish Squiggles

Hello, Fireflies!

I foundered a bit here and there this month with this challenge.  Getting in all three colors caused me a bit of a mental block at times! So, here, at the last, what can I do?

First, start with an absolutely gorgeous bluish-periwinkle holo.  This is Cult Nails Intriguing.

Next, pull out some nail art pens.  I found these Hot Designs pens at Target.  They're kinda cool because they have both a brush, and a squeeze fine tip.  Because of this, they're refillable, too! My only complaint is that I had to squeeze a little hard for some of these, which got uncomfortable after a while.

Not sure what to do with your nail art pens?  Squiggles and scrolls.

Sure, I might have been trying to make something, but you'll never know that it wasn't just squiggles and scrolls.  It's a foolproof plan.


I think this is one of those tools that will give me better results with a little practice!  What was the last thing you tried to do that you wondered if you'd ever get it, and then, it just came together?

  3. Your squiggles still look decent, woot woot. I totally hate my shaky hands, I can't do this kind. Shame, shame, shame.
