Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Crumpet's Nail Tarts- the tri-polish challenge (can't help but think of the Tri-wizard cup when I say that...) The basic premise is that we do 4 mani's a month (on the 3rd and 4th Tuesday and Thursday of the month) using the same 3 polishes. Each month we are given 3 colours, we each chose 3 polishes representing those colours and have to stick to those for the month. We're also allowed to use black, white, silver, gold and glitter toppers. There is no theme, you can do whatever you like as long as you stick to those colours. You have to use at least 2 of the colours in each manicure, and all 3 for at least one out of the four. Confused? Read on...
This month's colours are coral, green and purple. Sounds yukky, but I actually didn't have too much trouble coming up with my polishes: China Glaze Keep Calm, Paint On, Natural Collection Antique Coral and OPI Parlez Vous OPI. The green and coral polishes are fairly similar: pastel shades with fine shimmer, so I thought they'd work together. But of course, pastel purple is lilac, a completely different colour, so I chose the OPI as I thought the dustiness of the colour would compliment the other two.
So, I went for something simple for my first manicure, adding white (Barry M Matt White) and Gold (Avon Golden Vision) and freehanding some stripes. Simple, really pretty and spring-y! I love it :)
Check out the other lovely ladies taking part, and watch out for part 2 on Thursday!
