Untried Polish Challenge: Three Colors


Day 3 of the Untried Polish Challenge and I chose to do a gradient nail accent! See! It's more than just a plain swatch! :)


Here is my mani without a top coat. I used 3 out of the 4 colors in the China Glaze Ombre kit: Wait Teal You See. (the fourth color has already been used, so therefore is not untried!). The three polishes I used were: Turned Up Turquoise, Aquadelic, and White on White.

Can I just say I love the satin finish of Turned Up Turquoise!

I painted two coats of each, with one coat of White on White for my accent nail base color. I then used the sponge in the kit to create the gradient on my accent nail. I am use to using a makeup sponge for this so China Glaze's porous one was interesting, I like the "texture" it creates!


I then added some HK Girl Top Coat! I loved how it turned out. I really loved the shimmer in Turned Up Turquoise!


See! Gorgeous shimmer!

  1. Turned up Turquoise is really beautiful! I'd forgotten about that one. That color actually matches the dress I have on today. It's white, turqouise, and black stripes and this is the same color as my stripes! I may have to do a mani to match now.
