TRI - Deco
Welcome to a new month of TRI-Polish Tuesdays! This month's colors are Lilac, Teal, and Grey/Silver.
I decided to do a technique for creating an Art-deco style graphic that I saw on Pshiiit. It makes this neat pattern a lot easier to do, though I will admit to having some trouble lining up the striping tape.
I started with Cover Girl ShowStopper, a nice smooth silver. When that dried, I applied the tape according to the diagram on Pshiit.
I wasn't talented enough to take pictures of the process. I did want to show you that it's kind of a mess when you pull off the tape, though. Don't be discouraged! A lot of nail art looks a hot mess until you put topcoat on.
I found that it's easier to do this one nail at a time. Paint the nail bed portion first, and then the tip. Quickly, before the polish starts to set, take off the tape with a pair of tweezers.
I used Rimmel Salon Pro Purple Rain and Pop Beauty Brave for the lilac and teal.
I love this look, and it can be done with so many different colors!
