Triangle Mix and Match Nail Art

Today I have some nail art to share with you that I'm very very happy with!

I've wanted to do something with triangles for a long time, inspired by various favorite nail artists of mine such as Lindsay at Wondrously Polished and Camille at Pshiiit. So I painted my nails with my new Essie Midnight Cami, a metallic black/blue and got to work! 

 When I am trying a new design I often default to favourite colours because I know that if the design doesn't work out- at least I'll enjoy the colours. That's what I did here, using a metallic teal (Sally hansen Xtreme wear in 'The Real Teal') and copper (Essie Penny Talk) for the design. I kind of just winged it and did random triangular designs in the teal and lined everything in the copper. I then did some dots and swirls to take up blank space.

Here is a close up of the thumb- I'm kind of thinking it's the perfect abstract Christmas tree! What do you recon? Should I redo this design on all the nails for Christmas this year?

 Here is the other hand- I did similar, but slightly different designs.....mostly because I screwed up making them the same and decided to run with it!

 Yup lots of pictures.....I like them a lot.


So what do you think of my triangle mix and match nails?
