I've not been able to blog for some weeks. Although I have some nail polishes and hauls to show you, I'm starting with this tape and stamping nail art, because I'm supposed to make a post for the April Tri- Polish Challenge today. So I thought it was best to show the one that was supposed to be posted before Easter first, so that they at least are in chronological order. This is the mani I made for day 4 in the Tri- Polish Challenge.
What I did:First I used all the three colors, and painted one color on each nail. Then I taped off parts of the nails and made random color block areas. I used this tutorial (called Springtime Color Block Tape Manicure) by Chalkboard Nails, but made different tape patterns. After the color blocking, I used the geometric pattern on Konad m64, and stamped with black stamping polish. I must admit that I was surprised by how well the end result looked. (The only thing I didn't like was that small parts of the image stayed on the stamper.) But then I ruined most of the nails with the top coat. Luckily I also took photos before adding the top coat.

Used:The Tri- Polish Challenge polishes I chose for March:
*Linda Johansen Nail Candy: Lilac Lilly- purple
*H&M: Mint Madness- green
*H&M: Coral Road - coral
*Konad stamping plate m64
*Konad SP black

I'm still thinking about what polishes to chose for April. I have to choose one pink, orange and turquoise. I think I will use Gosh Bubble Gum as pink, and Gina Tricot #88 Flirt with me or Gosh Peachy as orange. I haven't decided on the third polish...... This is what I wrote yesterday. I even ordered Picture Polish Honey Dew, but now that it arrived, it looks more green than my H&M Bella's Choice... And I wish Gosh Peachy was more pastel, but it's pretty opaque, so I'm choosing Peachy again. I'm going to make the next mani in the Tri- Polish Challenge now, but am not sure when it and the post and everything will be ready.
I have to think of my health, so I have to blog in my own pace. Thank you for visiting my blog although I haven't been posting since before Easter.
