Tri Polish Challenge March: Manicure 2

Greetings All!

This is the second manicure for March's Tri Polish Challenge. I did explain it a bit on Tuesday, but the details are all HERE if you want them.

Here is a reminder of the polishes I will be using all month for this challenge

I'm a bit gutted because on Monday I got a lovely Sally Hansen coral pink in the mail! Then I could have used all Sally Hansen and my bottles would have matched!

Today I decided to use all three polishes again, to do an Ikat style print. Now, I've never had any desire to do Ikat print nails. It's not that I don't like them exactly, I just never really wanted them on my nails. They don't really appeal to me, and I have no idea why! So I decided to do them today.

After this, I don't think I'll be doing them again! This is not a look I like. I was told that these were very easy, and that you don't have to worry about being a little messy because it's supposed to look messy. I think the first couple I did were like the neatest ikats ever! So then I tried to deliberately make them a little messy. Either way, I think they look weird. Very bright and eye-catching and colourful, but weird.

The Tri Polish Challenge will be back next week, with 2 more manicures using these same three colours!

Remember to have a look at what everyone else has done to their nails!


  1. nice attempt, I've not done this style before and feel the same as you about it. Maybe I should try?

  2. make me wish I had chosen a lime green! I'm with you on the ikat. I'm just not very good at doing "random" and "messy" on my nails. In life, YES, but not on my nails. Even my splatters need to look neat *shakes head* And really, this looks lovely, even if it is not our style"

  3. They remind me of tye dyed tshirts :D

  4. Awww, I really like them! I think these look awesome. Great job!


I love it when you awesome people leave comments! I read and treasure them all, and I'll always respond to a question as soon as I can.
