Abstract Triangles


Hello, Fireflies!

Today is the last day of the Geometric mani theme for this challenge! I dug into the vault for this one, for a mani I liked, but just hadn't posted yet.

I started with a gorgeous shimmery teal,  Carpe Noctem South Haven Sunset.

In an unusual move for me, I wore Sunset Haven for a day, and then dressed it up.  You can tell by the sheet marks and scratches! 

I used tape to create some triangles with LA Splash Ocean's Fairy.

And then, I added more triangles with gold glitter and blue shimmer stripers.

Finally, I finished it off with a black stripe.  Or, another way, 1/3 of a triangle.

Next month's theme is stripes! Or, 1/3 triangles...or 1/4 squares...

  3. Ok I'm not going to lie, I really liked this UNTIL the black. I just loved how the colours were meshing but then the black kind of took something away from the shimmery thing going on.

    1. That's one of the reasons I take pix at different stages. Sometimes, I lack an editing eye.
