June Tri-Polish Day #1

It's time for the first day of the June edition of the Tri-Polish Challenge from Crumpet's Nail Tarts! This month's Tri-Polish colors are red, pink, and purple. My polish choices for the month are China Glaze Adventure Red-Y, China Glaze Sugar High, and Cult Nails My Kind of Cool Aid.

I started off with two coats of My Kind of Cool Aid, and then added a french tip of Sugar High. I used a detail brush to draw flowers in Sugar High, and then lined the tip and added details to the flowers with Adventure Red-Y. A few details with Sinful Shine Wisp, and my pretties were done! Personally, I think the Sugar High comes off too bubblegum bright in this manicure, but that's just my preferences. I'm so not a pink person in the first place! :)

Stay tuned for Thursday's entry into the Tri-Polish challenge, where I let my nine-year-old daughter have free reign with the challenge on my nails!

Now check out what everyone else has come up with for the first day of pink, red, and purple!

    1. Thank you. I think I enjoy other people's enjoyment of my nails as much as I do the fun of painting them!
