Cut Up Triangles

Allo polish Pals!
How are you doing today? I have a slightly odd looking manicure to share with you today... This is all made up of nail polish (apart from the studs). Let me explain... I had some nail polish which I left to try and peeled off like you would with DIY decals, I then used my craft knife to create triangles of all different sizes and began to stick them on in various ways. It has a 3D look to it but it didn't feel thick to wear.


I began with two coats of Barry M's 'Black' nail polish and and began to stick on my pieces of dried polish. The triangles were made with Barry M's 'Heather' (Purple) Claire's 'Splash' (..Blue) and Barry M's 'White'. The studs were sent to me a long, long time ago to review – which I did but I just thought they would be a cute touch for this manicure.

In hindsight... I should have maybe filed down the edges of my nails to stop any odd bits sticking off the nail – I did use cuticle clippers to trim them, but still.

What do you guys think of these cut up nails? Do you like this purple and blue together?
Have a great day!
Love
Ithi
