Tri-Polish Challenge Day one

Hello again!  Today I have a mani that I did for the Tri-Polish challenge that is being hosted at The Crumpets Nail Tarts.  What the hell is a Tri- Polish challenge you ask?  Well, it's a rather brilliant and fun challenge. What the idea is, is you're given three colors, this month it's coral, green, and purple.  And you have to pick three polishes of those colors and use them in a mani.  There will be four manicures done with these colors and you must use at least 2 of the assigned colors in all of the manis and one mani needs to include all three. You may also use white, black, gold, silver and glitter toppers.  But the three polishes that you chose cannot change. A little complicated to explain, but I hope you get the idea.  I must admit I was a little skeptical about this at first, but I love the concept now! It really forces you to be creative and do things you may not have thought of before. So on to the pics! For the first day I chose to do a plaid, and incorporated all three colors plus white to break things up a little bit.  The three polishes that I'm stuck with for the next 4 manis (I say stuck with, because it's so easy to say oh, this purple would be better than the other one I chose, but nope! You must stick with the ones you chose! Hard!) anyway, the three I chose are China Glaze Surreal Appeal for the coral color, Pop beauty in Row for the green, and Color Club Disco Dress for the purple.




I like how this came out! I used my new Orly striping brush and a cheap-y striping brush for the lines, and you can tell which lines were made with the cheap one! So in the future I will only be using my Orly brush, but other than that I'm happy with it! :)  Lets see what the other did with the challenge! 
Until next time!
