Tri Polish Tuesday - August - Stripes

Hi all!

I'm back! I spent Thursday evening until Sunday evening at Castlefest with my hubby and best friend, and it was wonderful (obviously I'm the one with leaves in my hair)! Sleeping in a tent was a different challenge... snoring neighbours and crying babies and all that. The weather was good, a bit too warm for my liking, I even got an unvoluntary tan. But the Annings pear peach cider I had made up for all that, and of course the lovely folk music (I liked Irfan, Rastaban and Rapalje best). Monday I went pear picking to raise money for the amateur brass orchestra my hubby plays in. After four days on my feet, I am knackered... I can feel I'm not 18 anymore (double that age in fact).

And it's Tuesday (well, just)! I went with something simple for today... stripes! This month's colours are blue, yellow and red... not the easiest colours together.

From left to right we have:
  • Sinful Colors - 101 Snow Me White
  • Miss Helen - 24
  • China Glaze - 1299 At Vase Value
  • China Glaze - 871 Lemon Fizz
  • China Glaze - 1152 Sunday Funday

I started with two coats of Snow Me White. I used 3 different striping brushes (different thicknesses) to freehand my stripes. I used this pattern as my inspiration. I finished off with a coat of G&G HK Girl top coat. My current bottle is getting low and a bit thick, so working fast to avoid bleeding is difficult, and sadly it shows (especially on my thumb).

The evil red bleeding... grrrr.

I do think this pattern works, but it'll not be easy for the following tuesdays to come up with something nice. Do you like this month's colour scheme?


  1. Love this! They remind me of beach balls for some reason, so fun!

    1. *giggles* Beach balls or those sunning beds *nods*. Glad you like these!

  2. So beautifull and colorfull! *-*

  3. Love these. Definitely agree with the beach balls :)
    I like the colours this month although they're pretty tough too x

    1. Nothing wrong with beach balls *giggles*. This month is pretty tough indeed!
