Copper Triangles

Hey everyone! Hope you've all had a lovely weekend. I was meant to have quite a busy one but I was far too ill yesterday to do anything so i just painted my nails and watched TV - a perfect day really, had it not been for me being ill! Luckily I'm feeling a bit better today and I managed to get some holiday shopping done. I found a skirt today that I think I'll be doing some nails inspired by, so keep an eye out for that! 

Today's nails are as a result of me just playing around a couple of weeks ago. I really wanted to try out Barry M - Copper Mine* from the Molten Metal Collection* as I'd seen a few people using it and it seemed like the perfect mix of copper and rose gold. And it is! I love it, but of course I couldn't just wear it plain. I decided to play around with some nail art pens that I'd not used in a while, and then I added some triangle studs from She Sells Sea Shells, which I bought absolutely ages ago but never got around to doing any designs with.

The base is Barry M - Copper Mine*, then I used the black Nails Supreme nail art pen for the big and little triangles, some of which I filled in using Barry M - Silver Lining*. Then I used acetone to take out the triangles, and I used triangle studs from She Sells Sea Shells (which unfortunately don't seem to be on the website anymore) I then filled the triangles in with black to make them stand out more. All finished with a coat of Seche Vite.

What do you think? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Alice, this is such a fun mani. I love the Molten Metals collection and how pretty the finish is. The triangle theme with this design in very cute and I adore that negative space nail.
