E is for Espresso, Elle, and Eva

 Hi guys, sorry today's post is a bit late, and also short.  The time just sort of got away from me today.  Nonetheless, it is Thursday, which means another instalment of the A-Z of polish. Today's letter is E, and my 3 E polishes are Barry M - Espresso, and 2true Sequins - Eva (blue), and Elle (pink)

 So, I started with 2 coats of Espresso, and let those dry completely. Once dry, I used my striper brush to paint alternating random triangles with Elle and Eva, then outlined them with the opposing colour.
Unfortunately I didn't quite fill in the point of one of the triangles, but in real life you couldn't really tell.  If you could, I would have gone back and filled the darn thing in!
I left the design without a top coat, since I wanted to keep the matte and textured finishes.
I didn't go into this mani with any real plan, other than what polishes I was going to use, but I liked how it turned out.  I love these 2 textures, as well as anything matte black, so this was bound to be a winning combo for me, even if the execution could do with a little work.

That's it from me today, but I'll be back with another prompt for the NPC tomorrow.  In the meantime, don't forget to visit the hub page to see what everyone else has come up with for E :D


  1. love your nails and texture nail art ! superb !!!!

  2. Oh my goodness! How long r ur nails getting! Super mani also, I quite like the matte black. Do u have a pic somewhere of it on its own? I am also a big fan of texture polishes, they make any mani quite special without much effort.
