Tri Polish Challenge: Lilac, Teal, Grey/Silver

Wednesday, 17 September 2014

Bit late with this one ooops! I've been having a nice relaxing time over the last week, giving my nails and my blogger brain a rest :) Lots of lovely things lined up over the next few weeks though!
I love this month's colour combination and decided to mix them all together in a water spotted look. I've water spotted in one colour over another before, but not two over another! I'm going to call it double bubble...


I started with two coats of the new grey from Barry M. I then dropped several blobs of the lilac or teal polish into a tub of luke warm water. Once it had spread on the surface I sprayed with an alcohol gel/water mix to create the holes in the floating layer. Next, I dipped in my finger nail side down into the layer, removed and repeated with the other colour in another tub. I topcoated and had a bit of clean-up to do afterwards but I love this method.

The subtlety of these three colours is really pleasing to the eye, almost looks like a sort of camo pattern too! I am in love with this new gelly from Bazza, I'm a total grey-phile at heart and I'm quite partial to a nice cup of traditional Indian chai too; we were clearly made for each other haha!

Barry M: Chai, Guava, Prickly Pear; Color Club: Topcoat; Alcohol Gel/Water Mix in Spray Bottle and Yoghurt Pot
