The tri-polish challenge day 9: Roses are red, violets are blue…


Hello my dears! It's time for another edition of the Tri-polish challenge!! What? We're already in the 3rd Tuesday onf May? Gosh, that was fast!
This month we have three new colours to make 4 manis out of them: Red, blue and grey. See below which polishes I've chosen this month:

From the left: Dior Gris perle(oldie but goodie), Mavala Trinidad, H&M Super red


Before you continue reading, I wanted to apologize with all my readers, and blogger fellows, because lately I have not had the time to read my blog list and I'm very late with commenting and answering comments. I have been so busy I hardly have time to paint my nails and I take some time of my evenings to photograph my makeup with louzy lighting, editing and writing posts, and I often fall asleep while doing so. For the challenge in May I have 2 quick manis and 2 manis that took me a little more preparation. So instead of skipping the challenge I decided I would go for easy looks. Today we start with the easy. I painted two coats of the awesome Dior Gris perle, and stamped on it with Mavala Trinidad using konad plate m and on my ring finger nail I stamped qith the stunning H&M Super red using konad plate m. I top it all with one coat of Konad top coat.



This was simple and quick to achieve and not very arty, but it still have the three mandatory colours!!
What do you think about it?  What do you do when you want some nail art but you don't have tons of time? do you also do stamping?
Let me know your thoughts! And don't forget to check what the other girls have come up today, and what are their colours for May!!
Love,
Nati

  1. Don't stress Natalia, your readers appreciate when you can comment and its important you still have time to do everything else :) I love this Tri-colour look, its beautiful! I love the red accent nail, it reminds me of those fancy seals on letters! I think stamping is great when you are pressed for time or I'll try pairing something very unusual together! xx

    1. Hi Ithi! I know you're all so lovely you have the patience, but my feeling is I'm being a "bad-blogger-friend" :(
      Now that you mention it's true! it does look like a wax seal! i haven't thought about it. Yep, I chose these colours because they are pretty on their own, but they don't pair together very well... so that's that.
      thank you sweetie for your comment! xx

  3. I love this mani :) I think the rose looks so lovely :)
    Please don´t feel that you have to apologize :) We all understand :) Rest when you can and then you comment on your fav blogs when you can :) You are the most important thing :)
    Stamping is really loads of fun... I am rubbish at it though and it never turns out the way I want it to :)
    I think I must be doing something wrong :/
    When I want to wear nail art but don´t have the time to do something really fancy I always go for polka dots :) Or I put glitter (either polish or loose glitter) or beads all over an accent finger (usually my ring fingers) :)
    Sometimes I use stickers :)
    I really love polka dots though and you can do so many lovely things with them :)
    Hugs

  9. Salut sweet Nati, I totally understand the time constraints. I lately also have not the time I would love to have to devour to my hobby. I have so many things to settle and organize, not to mention that there are days when I simply am incapable - you know why... On to your mani, I love it and how wonderfully selected. You always surprise me with your ideas and artfulness. Guess what - today I managed a nearly perfect stamping though I am a far cry from "quick". If I want to do something quick I either put on a couple of studs or do a Dotticure. Bisous xxx

  11. Ciao Nati! This manicure looks so pretty! I love the theme with roses and violets! Very creative!
    I especially like the blue and grey nail! Lovely!
    My tip for a quick "fix" is glitter gradients! Just dab on the glitter as a gradient and add a top coat! Done! ;)
    Stammi bene cara! Baci! xx
