Creative musings in bright colors

Orange Angles

It’s wedding season! Which means I need more teal-and-orange nails because the dress I wear to almost every wedding is orange, and the shoes are teal. It is also the start of the 31 day OMD challenge (which I will be somewhat participating in), and Day 1 is teal! Go figure.


It only occurred to me AFTER I did this nail art that I actually already have a teal holo polish. But I forgot about it (silly me!) and so I used a teal polish with holo over it. Which was still fun, but a bit harder to use with striping tape! I don’t know that I’ve ever tried two colors over striping tape and got it to work.


I started on most nails with a base of Caribbean Frost covered with two coats of Sparking Garbage. Then I went to town with studs and freehanded some triangles because I could. My middle finger got two coats of Thandie and striping tape. Magic!


~ Teal: Wet n’ Wild – Caribbean Frost
~ Holo glitter: ORLY – Sparkling Garbage
~ Orange: Zoya – Thandie
~ Light orange: Maybelline – Bleached in Peach


The studs are from a neon set sold by the Born Pretty Store, and this might the the first good use I’ve had for them! I don’t usually do neon studs 🙂 Hope you enjoyed!
