April Tri Polish Challenge - Day 1

Hello, lovelies!

Today marks the start of the April Tri Polish Challenge.  The Crumpet started this challenge last month and you can find the details or her blog :)  This months colors are pink, orange and turquoise.  I will be using polish that I received as a gift from my mother-in-law over the weekend...

Color Club, Poptastic, Jackie OH!, Koo-Koo CaChoo, Edie, wavy, frenchie, funcky french, pink, orange, turqoise, April, Trip Polish Challenge, nails, nail art, nail design, mani
Colors Used: Color Club - Jackie OH! (pink), Edie (turqouise?), Koo-Koo CaChoo (orange)

Let me start off by saying the formula on these polishes... amazing!!  They're almost 1 coaters.  They came in the Poptastic pack, but I have a feeling Edie is from the Electro Candy collection.  Either way, I love my new polishes!!

The wavy design was inspired by a ring that my hubby gave me for Christmas 2 years ago.  It's a very unique ring.  He done did good lol.  So, I achieved this look using my striping brush.  I found that keeping the brush stationary in one hand and rolling my finger/fingernail on the other hand was extremely helpful.

My only complaint is that I made the orange wave on my ring finger to thick.  A little irritating but oh well!

Please take a look at the wonderful manis from the other challenge participants :D

Until next time!
