It's the first day of the tri-colour challenge and I had every intention of seeing this one through but disaster has struck and my camera has given up the ghost with pictures from my last five manicures on them (including a mani I did for the AIS weekly challenge this week). I have one set of pictures for the first day of the The Crumpet's tri-colour challenge so I'll crack on with that for now but it may be radio silence for a bit whilst I sort myself out.
As usual the challenge is to do four manicures using three colours selected on a monthly basis. For May the colours were red, blue and grey. You must use two of the three in every mani. You can use black, white, gold, silver and glitter in your manicures.
Based on my hideous selection last month I deliberated a bit more this month and decided to make my life easier by selecting colours that were similar in depth and opacity. I've gone for OPI's French Quarter for your Thoughts, Barry M's Blackberry from the Gelly range and Barry M's Raspberry for my colours.
At the same time as preparing for this manicure I received my dotting tools in the nail mail and went a bit dot happy. The base coat is French Quarter for your thoughts and then I've dotted randomly in different sizes in Raspberry and Blackberry and Barry M's silver foil.
That's it for today! Hopefully I'm not gone too long otherwise you may eventually be subjected to dodgy pictures from my mobile :D
