Tri Polish Tuesdays - Distressed

Hi all!

It's the third Tuesday of the month already! Another Tri Polish Tuesday using red, orange and yellow! Today's mani is inspired by the Distressed nails from Chalkboard Nails, you can view her tutorial here. I didn't start out like she did, but I did end with that technique *winks*.

The polishes I used this time:
  • Catrice - Glamazona LE - C04 Lime Heart Is Beating Like A Jungle Drum
  • Catrice - 04 Orange-Utan
  • NYC - 261 Red me the news
  • Rimmel - 800 Black Out 

I started out with a red and orange saran wrap like base. It came out rather reddish though, you have to believe me there is orange in there as well.  I used the dry brush technique to add bits of black and yellow. And yes, that is a cat hair you see on my ring finger. I had no idea it was there until I started editing the pictures. Oooops.

I think this colour combination really works like this, and that black just adds to it. I also like the tiny hints of yellow peeping through.

I liked this more than I thought I would, and it is very easy!

Wonder what the others have done with these colours this week? Check the InLinkz below!
