Hi friends! Today is day 3 of the geometric challenge, and the theme is triangle. MY FAVORITE!
Funny story about this theme... I was accidentally left off the email chain so I found out that we were starting the challenge only the day before we actually started the challenge and was totally unprepared haha. BUT the day I found out that we were about to start, I had already done these nails but not posted about them so I was like PERFECT, I'LL SAVE THEM!
When I started this mani I had no idea what I was going to do. I painted my thumb and ring finger in Floss Gloss Perf, my middle and pinkie finger in Floss Gloss Wavepool, and my pointer finger in Floss Gloss Stun. I sat there and looked at them for a while and thought about it for a while and finally was just like, okay, triangles. I wanna do some triangles. I love triangles! Let's do those.
So I took my striper brush and freehanded some triangle explosion type shapes using Stun on all my fingers except my pointer. Then I outlined them in the opposite colors from the base and painted triangles over the glitter. I left the glitter explosion plain on my ring finger to switch it up and also because I liked that shape a lot by itself haha.
I considered leaving my pointer finger solid gold and then quickly became unsatisfied with that decision. So I painted on blue and pink explosion shapes and almost stopped there but they just needed a little more. Finally I outlined the explosions in opposite colors and called it a day. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.
My cousin commented on how 80s these looked and I had to agree.
On my right hand I decided to do glitter gradients. Are you guys surprised? I know this isn't the norm for me. I did gradients partially because I was too lazy to repeat the same design on my right hand but mostly because I LOVE the way Stun gradates. I mean, just look at it. *sighs dreamily*
I loved wearing these nails SO MUCH because they were literally a combination of all my favorite nail art things: triangles, glitter, blue and pink together, 80s-style design, and glitter gradients. I was sad to take them off! What do you guys think about them?
Don't forget to check out with the other ladies came up with for today :)
