June Tri-Polish Day #3

It's the third day of the June 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've said before that I'm not a terribly creative person. I frequently get my manicure designs from other nail artists, and today's is no different. If this challenge didn't have specific posting days, I would have put this up for Monday's Monkey See, Monkey Do (another Crumpet challenge! :) So, as I often do, I'm copying one of Raggio di Luna's amazing manis: 

I did rotate the diamond to take advantage of the fact that my nails tend to get long in the summer since I started keeping them polished. (I have a whole two summers of data now. Not statistically significant. :P) I used Milani Whitest White for the base dot color.

I love the shimmer in My Kind of Cool Aid, but I haven't been able to do a good job of picking it up in photos.

I wish I had a steadier hand for centering the over-dots better, honestly, but I love the way it came out anyway!

One of my co-workers said the index finger on this hand below looked like it was looking at her!

And now for something completely different! (Except for the red, pink, and purple, of course. ;)


  1. Love the index finger - it does seem like it's looking at me! LOL Great job!
