We've reached the end of April so it's time for another Nailvengers Assemble challenge! This time our theme is Untried Polish, so we're all breaking out our untried bottles for some nail art.
It was only when I sat down to do this that I realised I actually don't have that much untried polish. I was trying not to include press samples that I haven't published yet and only look to my Helmers, but most of my untried polishes are glitters and shimmers in totally contrasting colours! All together, I think I have around 12 untried, which I know compared to some of you is nothing!
I ended up opting for 3 colours - Julie G Mermaid's Tale, Sinful Colors Nail Junkie and piCture pOlish Swagger. Mermaid's Tale was a gift from Polly Polish and Nail Junkie I picked up many months ago in Boots. I had to give in and use a press sample, hence Swagger (full review of those piCture pOlish shades coming soon!)
I started with a base of Swagger, then I used the cling film/saran wrap technique along with Mermaid's Tale to create the sort of rippling water effect. My accent nail is 2 coats of Nail Junkie over Mermaid's Tale. I finished with some square silver studs from Born Pretty Store. I absolutely love the combination! Mermaid's Tale is just perfection - so glad we had this theme! I've also messed around with a few "untried" camera angles. ;)
