Mish Mash Challenge: Triangle

Hi chickies!

I can't believe it's October already!! Where has the year gone? I guess I can't deny fall anymore *sniff sniff* bye bye summer :( But it is wednesday so at least there's a mish mash challenge to cheer me up right?! This weeks theme is triangle. I couldn't figure out what to do so I just kind of winged it until I came up with something I liked and man, I really like these! 

I started with a base of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls and created a gradient on top of that with Lime Crime Peaches <3 Cream, Lime Crime Parfait Day, and Kiss Striper Polish in Soft Blue. When that was dry I freehanded the triangle/swirly thing on top with black acrylic paint. Some Poshe top coat on top and the design was finished!






I really like the whole abstract, illusion-y look of these nails. I hope they are triangle enough for you guys! 

Don't forget to check out everyone's triangle designs for today!
Thanks so much loves :)

  15. Love it! The illusion-y effect is gorgeous and perfect...it reminds me of a music videoclip I saw some years ago (many years ago XD). There was the same pattern rotating in the background and it was quite a mesmerizing view!

  16. I can't believe it's October already me neither. And it's cold and cloudy! Already! ç_ç
    Anyway: you did an amazing job as usual! I love how the pastel and delicate shades you used for the gradient contrast with the black polish. ^_^

  18. These are trippy (in a good way!)...I love the way the triangles sort of spiral around. Very cool!

  19. This is amazing!! I am so jealous of your nail art skills - I could never free hand something like this, and have it look uniform. Love it!
