80s Two-Hand Mix Up

Today's nail art design features four different designs across both hands. On my right hand, I went for some easier designs to try to make it a little easier on my less skilled left hand. On my left hand, I did a tried and true pattern, plus a little something new!

The whole look feels pretty 80's to me (especially the designs on my left hand), and I am SO loving it!

I did inverted triangles on my pinky, ring finger, and thumb. It's one of my favorite looks and I was so happy to wear it again.

My middle and pointer fingers have a new design on them! I did some jagged zig zags of varying heights -- switching the order of the colors between the nails.

On my right hand, I've got two designs, both of which I have tutorials for! The awesome thing about them is that they both use a dotting tool to create the patterns, which is really easy for my left hand to use.

My pinky, ring finger, and thumb feature a gradient dot variation!

My middle and pointer fingers have a fierce leopard print.

Here are the polishes that I used.
Misa Ripe Raspberry (pink)
Essie Butler Please (cobalt blue)
China Glaze Sunday Funday (aqua)
