Complicated Cubes

Ok, I like this. Partially its because I know how I created it, and partially just cause it honestly looks cool. This entire design was free-handed: I thought about how long it would take to make all of these various intersecting lines with striping tape and just noped out of it. The end result, despite being freehand, looks pretty crisp to me!

Really, I wanted to play with one of my new polishes. This is three thin (I could have gotten away with two thicker) coats of Odette by Cadillacquer. I am currently having a mild love affair with shades of grey (did this mani give it away?), and this one is a stunner. Odette is a light grey with silver shimmer, small silver glitter, and larger silver hexes. I think there might even be some scattered holo in there. Overall, the effect is subtle but absolutely stunning. The glitter is easy to get out and does not need placement.

~ Grey glitter: Cadillacquer – Odette
~ Light grey: Zoya – Dove
~ Grey: WOW – #333
~ Grey textured: Zoya – London
~ Teal: Emily de Molly – Glee Ridden

Of course when I painted these I did the whole thing then top-coated…and realized that I absolutely should not have top coated after adding textured polish if I wanted to retain the texture! So I re-added another layer of textured polish after top coat. Ooops. Luckily you really cannot tell at the end, but multiple layers of textured polish were a pain to remove!
