The tri-polish challenge day 7: Really popping poppies


Hello darlings! Yet another week for this Wonderful challenge! I tell you, I'm having so much fun with it. In fact is very stimulating to have to use the same polishes for four different looks, because you don't want your mani's to look all so similar.


For today and to celebrate the beautiful spring time, I got some poppy flowers (well, sort of). This was very simple to do: I first applied my base coat and two coats of H&M Bella's choice (turquoise). Then with a dotting tool using Clic #465 (pink) I draw the petals of the flowers. I placed one orange dot in the center of each flower using Clic#006 (orange). Then with NYX ink black I draw the stems, then added a black dot to the center of each flower and some other dots here and there. I left it without topcoat to enphasize the "popping" effect as the dots have some relief.


So, that was my idea for this third April's manicure using Pink, Orange and Turquoise! What are your thoughts about it? I'd like to know!
And, please be sure to check what the other ladies have come up with for this challenge.
Love,
Nati

    2. Si había pensado en espesar, dejándolo solo en cosas sencillas.
      una flor así es bonita y sencilla, pensaba también en Dog paws huellas de can/perro.
