Tri-Polish Tuesday: January Week 2

21 January 2014

So I accidentally missed last week's Tri-Polish Tuesday because I went to see Priscilla, Queen of the Desert the Tuesday night.  Although the nails were all painted, I didn't get home in time to write about them.  It's saved me having to do a manicure this week though, so really it's all worked out fine!

I used exactly the same polishes as I did last time around (here's my last post here - with a reminder of the rules).  These were Barry M Limited Edition Yellow and Ciate Boudoir and Hopscotch.  I also used white this time around.

So I applied two coats of Barry M's White then once it was dry, used masking tape then sponged a gradient over.  This worked in some places but not in others!  After cleaning up, I applied two coats of insta-dry!

I love this effect but I wish it looks like a gradient on all the nails.  Also, the masking tape didn't quite work and blurred some of the lines.  I tried to top this up with my Barry M nail art pen to make it look neater.  Has anyone got any better alternatives?

You may have noticed I have a new look blog.  I really love it but I'd also love to get your feedback!  Let me know what you think! :-)


  1. This gradient looks so nice! I love the stripes of white you added! I hope you had a good time watching Priscilla, Queen of the Desert! :)

    1. It was so much fun - I'd tell everyone to go see it if they can!

  2. Love how you've made the gradient more exciting by the use of the white, these look so fab. And your new blog is awesomeeeeee I'm so glad it's finally here! Xxxxx

  3. ooOOooo Love the look on your blog! :D I love your idea on the gradient :) very very pretty!


I always look forward to your lovely messages and comments and always try to reply! :-)
