NEW 31 DC: Geometric

I probably did four manis for today's prompt. The stamp design I wanted wasn't working with the polish I wanted, and my tape wasn't laying right, blah blah blah. Whether this mani is the best of the bunch is debatable, but it is the only one I liked enough to take photos of. You win some, you lose some, right? All part of the learning process. 

All three colors (yes, there are three- the color contrast between my base and triangles isn't very apparent) I used in this mani are BRAND NEW Sinful Colors that I found at Walgreen's the other day- I'm a Sinful sucker! The base is Cool Gray, the diamonds were freehanded on with a striping brush and Mauve, and the dotted lines were done with a striping brush and Ardois. The whole new Sinful Collection (I couldn't see the name, as Walgreen's had it shoved on a very narrow bottom shelf) is very reminiscent of their Fall Muse Collection, but much more pastel. Very muted, greyed out shades, which I love!

To give credit where it is due, I was inspired by this argyle post by Top Coat It.
