The tri-polish challenge day 12 : What's wrong with Burberry?


Hello dears! How are you doing?
I'm about to show you the last manicure for this month on the Tri-polish Challenge. This time I came up with a better idea: Burberry nails!! But, wait haven't you said you had to use 3 mandatory colours? Grey, blue and red? Yes, this is definitely an "open" interpretation of Burberry using other colours!



For achiving my idea I first painted my index and pinkie nails with Mavala Trinidad, and thumb, middle and ring finger nails with Dior Gris perle. Then using a NYX ink black and white I freehanded the lines and then using H&M super red and a liner brush I added the final lines.


The result was less sharp that it would've been using striping tape, but boy, it would have taken for ever to do all those lines with striping tape!! So Free hand it was. Seen from afar it looks less messier, and I really like it despite the colour not being the "right" Burberry colours.
Let me know your thoughts about it!
Don't forget to check ont hte other ladies manicures for today!
Love,
Nati

  3. Se notan muy bien los colores y se distinguen muy bien los unos de los otros.
    probablemente necesita brillo? ya que el azul un poco opaco. El diseño te quedó bien.

    1. Hola Andrea, si quedó un poco opaco, tendría que haber usado otro topcoat. Gracias!

  11. I think this looks great, I think your being two hard on yourself! I would never have guessed you did these lines free hand, they are so amazingly neat and tidy! I can't imagine the mess I'd make if I tried to do this freehand! And the colours...Yum! They work so well together :D You should be proud of this! xx
