Neon Nested Triangles

Today post is sort of a fail. Not because the mani was a mess, but I just didn't like it. Has that ever happened to you? I was so sure I'm gonna like the idea in my head, but when I was done, I'm looking at my nails and just feel.. no. Regardless, I took some pics to share with you guys, maybe some of you might like it. I removed it right after taking the pics.



The base of this mani is OPI Road House Blue and Finger Paint Twisted. I forgot how I loved this flakie! I mean, just look at it. The OPI is a one coater, perfect formula. 
I used scotch tape after they are completely dry to create the neon triangle. They are the two Models Own Polish for Tan neon, Sun Hat and Flip Flop. I was planning to use striping tape to make a neat nested triangle, but I got impatient and decided to free hand it instead. All the white triangles were free handed with a small striping brush using Butter London Cotton Buds, finished off with HK Girl top coat.

  5. I just stumbled across your blog because of the piCture pOlish paisley design. I love your designs! And I love the concept here! I also think your freehand triangle art is really good. What about trying the same design over with the same base colors but maybe different colors for the triangles? I could really see something that picks up the colors in the lovely flakies like Colors by Llarowe - Holiday Road and a really vibrant purple?
