I was originally going to call this post "Aqua Doritos," which is what my boyfriend exclaimed after I first showed him this nail art, but figured I should probably go for something a little more descriptive.
I had planned to do bunting nail art with these colors but when I went to paint them on my newly shortened nails (I had an unfortunate break), I thought it would look better to scatter the triangles around. I totally love the way this came out.
The base of this manicure is OPI My Vampire is Buff, which is honestly the star of this collection for me. It needed 3 coats for opacity and can be a bit streaky at times, but the formula is thin enough that the coats don't matter and the color is to die for. This clean cream shade is just divine and I probably should go out and pick up some backups.
I used OPI Can't Find My Czechbook (the aqua) and OPI I Saw...U Saw...We Saw...Warsaw (the navy) for the two triangle colors. I freehanded on the triangles with my medium length striper brush and then outlined them with the opposite color.
Geometric designs are always eye catching and I think having these dark triangles on such a light base really adds to that effect, as well.
What do you think? Triangle heaven or aqua Doritos?
