Gold and Green Geometric Triangles

Monday, September 22, 2014

Here's my third manicure for this month's theme of geometric for The Nail Challenge Collaborative. I hadn't made my own nail polish decals in a while so I did a geometric design using some triangle polish decals I made and cut out. They didn't turn out exactly how I pictured it though.

I used Ciaté Cookies and Cream on all the nails. The triangles were created with Orly Ingenue and OPI Mermaid's Tears. Finished with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat.

I think if I had cute the triangles a bit smaller, they would have turned out better. The big triangles made it hard for it to lay entirely flat on the nails. What do you think?

  12. i really like the colors together! i actually like that the triangles are bigger than what i've seen others do so far... i like how the triangles overlap :) but i agree it would be annoying if it was really lumpy

    1. Thanks! I didn't like how big the triangles look myself but I'm happy to hear you like them. It was a bit lumpy on the nails and when I top coated it, it bubbled which was annoying.
