Since returning from West Virginia on Monday evening I've worked approximately 40 hours in slightly less than 3 days. I slept for 11 hours strait today and I'm still exhausted so I'm keeping it short today. I did these nails a few weeks ago and have been saving the photos to share.

The triangle design is something I've seen a few places and it looked easy enough, even for someone with limited skills such as myself. After a few weeks of putting it off (tape mani's are super time consuming for me for some reason) I decided to give it a shot, and it was easier than I expected.

I started with a base coat of ORLY 'Its Up To Blue' and put a coat of Finger Paints 'Art You Wondering' on top. I actually wore that for a day or two and when the tips started to wear went for the triangles. I placed 2 pieces of tape to form the triangle then painted the whole remaining area with Rimmel 60 Seconds Vinyl Mirror 'Metallic' and then a layer of Seche Vite. When that dried I moved the two pieces of tape up and painted another triangle in ORLY 'Vinyl'. Then I topped it all off with another coat of SV.

I was pretty pleased with how these nails turned out and how simple the manicure it was. I loved the color combination and i'm looking forward to trying this with other colors.
