April Tri-Polish Challenge: Day 3

Here is my third entry for April's Tri-Polish Challenge, brought to us by Crumpet's Nail Tarts. We're given three colors at the start of the month, and we have to choose one polish for each color, and then create four manicures that each use at least two of those three, and at least one of the four has to use all three. We're also allowed to use white, black, gold, silver, and clear-based glitter in our creations.

April's colors are pink, turquoise, and orange, for which I chose Sinful Colors Orange Cream, China Glaze For Audrey, and Wet n Wild Sunny Side Up. For today's mani I also used Milani Whitest White and Color Club Antiquated. I'm not sure if Antiquated counts as silver or gold, as in some lights it looks one, and sometimes it looks the other. But I figure that it's close enough that I won't get a slap on the wrist for it, right? ;)

My inspiration for today's nail art came from this amazing manicure by the delightful Kathleen:

Isn't is GORGEOUS? I can't do it justice, but it certainly inspired me. I hope you enjoy my rendition of it as much as I enjoyed having it on my nails!

Now let's see all the other pretties my fellow Nail Tarts have created!


  1. They came out sooooo cute! Don't belittle your efforts - I love these! :D

    1. Thanks! And I can't help it - I'm always jealous of designs with fine lines. But I still won't do stamping or get acrylic paints, for some reason (okay, the not wanting acrylics is due to both lack of storage space and not being good at mixing colors to the shade I want - but I already have a couple hundred bottles of lacquer in nearly every shade! :)

      I continue to work toward the ability to draw fine lines and detailed work on my nails with POLISH! ^_^

  2. Great color combo and design!
