Tripolish Challenge: Brown, Pink and Grey

So, we’re into February, and month two of the Tripolish challenge! I have to admit that I’ve struggled a little bit with the colour combo – I don’t have many polishes in brown or grey (i.e. one each!), it’s not a colour combo that I’d normally choose to put together, and it’s not really related to many things that you find in nature like last month’s challenge (red, orange and yellow) was. So, definitely a challenge!

One of the rules with Tripolish is that you stick to the same polishes for the whole month, so this month I’ve chosen

  • Barry M in Mushroom (brown)
  • Nails Inc in The Southbank (grey)
  • Essie in We’re All In It Together (pink)

So, without further ado, here goes!

Theme Buffet: Leopard Print

I can’t believe I’ve never done a leopard print mani before! They’re really simple to do – it’s literally just a case of applying a base colour (Nails Inc The Southbank in this case), then using the brush from another colour nail polish to dab on some irregular shapes (I used Barry M Gelly in Blueberry). When that’s dry, use a nail art pen, or  a dotting tool, to partially outline each dot and create the effect (I used a Barry M nail art pen) and finish with your favourite top coat (I used Seche Vite).

This was the first incarnation of this mani, before I decided that it didn’t quite look ‘busy’ enough

So, I added some little marks on the nail, which look a lot like triangles with rounded corners. I used the same Barry M nail art pen to add in these marks, and finished with another coat of Seche Vite.

Nails Inc The Southbank Swatch


wpid-20131102_181050.jpg

This is a lovely shade of mid-grey that is surprisingly versatile, and I used it as part of my 50/50 Stud  tutorial. It goes on well and dries quickly, but needs two coats for full opacity.
