Tri-Polish Tuesdays

 Hiya lovelies! I'm sorry I've been away for a few days again, I've been really busy with work, and exhausted when I wasn't, so I just needed to see out the rest of the week :/  I have a couple of days off now, so hopefully I'll be able to get some stuff prepared for later in the week.  Today however, is the second Tuesday of the month, which means it's time for another Tri-Polish Challenge mani.  If you didn't catch last weeks post, the colours for this month are green, purple and pink......

So, I started off with BYS Pink Panic as a base, and then stamped on this tartan/houndstooth image from MoYou  XL Punk 01 with Color Club - Mrs Robinson on all but the ring finger.  Then I made some decals with Barry M - Espresso and POP Beauty - Radioactive.  The words on the ring finger also came from Punk 01, and the word on the index finger was just one that I carefully trimmed from the edge of the ring finger decal :p  The skull and stars both came from MoYou XL Punk 04.
I still need a lot more practise with decals, but I definitely feel like I'm getting there.  I did have 2 major issues during this mani though....

First off, my Konad Black is dead, and the only real "jet black" stamper I have is very prone to smudging, so I had to make do with the Barry M for now, which is a bit wishy washy :/
Secondly, my squishy stamper is, well, to put it bluntly, it's fucked! :'( It's got lots of little tears in it now, and it leaves little slices in the images.  I've ordered 3 different stampers so far, and they've all been firm squishy, so I'm still hunting for now.  The firm squishy's all needed priming too, but I did that earlier, so I'll be trying them out later on tonight. I'll be sure to let you guys know how it goes, and I'm really hoping it doesn't end up in a broken nail. Wish me luck! :)

So, I was quite pleased with this mani all things considered.  There's some major funkiness on the pink nails, of which I'm not a fan, but the overall style, and the awesomeness of the neon green on the pink and purple was enough to save it for me.

What about you guys though, what do you think of this mani?  Don't forget to check out all the other mani's in the thumbnails below either :D
