TRI Holo-Watercolor

Hello, Fireflies!

Today is the first Tri-polish challenge for May.  So, right off the bat, I think, let's put all these colors together and see what we get! I used Nabi Red, which is a gorgeous super-saturated scattered red holo, and Nabi Purple, a dark wine scattered holo, and Polished by KPT Green With Envy, a very sheer pale green scattered holo.

I was inspired by this look from the Nailasaurus to add some black on the sides.  I used some tape and a pair of craft scissors to get the wave, and then painted it with Cult Nails Nevermore.


I love how the blobs of color become more abstract and watercolor-like when bordered by the black - like whatever shape they might have had becomes even more amorphous.

These aren't colors I'd normally pair together - would you?

  2. Very cool. Your design reminds me of a painting a friend of my mother's did when I was a kid. It was a scene of African women walking across a dune with huge clay pots on their heads. The colours and movement in your nail art evoke that painting for me. :D
