Geometric Challenge Day 7: Plenty of Polygons

Hi all! To my fellow Canadians I hope you had a fun-filled Family Day yesterday. I'm home for a few days for reading week and basically all I want to do is catch up on sleep. I have zero energy to do anything else, which is concerning considering that this week will undoubtedly fly by. 

The prompt for today was 'polygon' so I chose a simple rhombus print using the three new OPI shades I picked out from the Euro Centrale collection. I like the colours but I wasn't entirely impressed with the formula on them. All of them went on pretty streaky and required three coats to even out and cover opaquely for me, but maybe it was user error :P 


I started with OPI You're Such A Budapest on my ring finger and OPI My Vampire Is Buff on the rest. I used striping tape to create the rhombus design, filling in the spaces with OPI You're Such a Budapest and OPI Can't Find My Czechbook.

Be sure to stop by the other ladies' blogs to see what they did today!


I'm also still incredibly behind on blog reading and commenting but I will catch up- thanks for bearing with me!

  1. This is great! I especially love your thumb! I am loving the OPI Euro Centrale shades, but I agree that a few of them are a bit thin which makes them difficult to use for nail art like this. Regardless, great job with polygon day!

  2. Those look fantastic! ^^ Your freehand is so neat... And the colors are so sweet! Though 3 coats is more than I am willing to paint... I almost never go beyond 2.
