Happy Tuesday, guys!
So I’m on this crazy 2 month long “no-buy” ever since I super splurged on every freaking summer collection that was released last month. To get myself to use all the polishes I bought (and to use up all the untrieds I already had), I figured I would challenge myself by participating in a bunch of awesome nail challenges.
Today I have a mani for Tri-Polish Tuesday. Tri-Polish is a challenge put on by the Crumpet’s Nail Tarts group on Facebook. Basically, every Tuesday you create a mani using only the 3 colors specified (and some black, white, silver or gold is also accepted).
For this mani, I decided to do something floral. Now. I am TERRIBLE at florals, unless they’re stamped, or they’re the dot flowers. I can’t freehand flowers to save my life, but they say that “Practice makes perfect,” so I figured meh, why not try it again. I wanted to do something a bit more “abstract” in case the flower didn’t turn out right.
I was completely inspired by Amy of Polish, Etc (IG @mcpolish) and Gianna aka IG @nailstorming when they did some super cute “Splash Flowers.” I Googled Splash Flower Mani, and found that The Lacquerologist had an awesome, awesome tutorial for these.
