Artsy Wednesday - Three Colour Nail Art

These Wednesdays come around quick!  This weeks theme is three colours.  I've had these pics ready for a few days, then nearly forgot to write my post, silly me!

I won't bend your ears too much this week, other half has brought a cold home, and it's doing it's best to get me.  Early night and cosy jim jams for me tonight.  Oh, the high life...

Without further ado, here's the nails:
I'm quite pleased with how these turned out, considering they didn't take me very long to do.  I started off with a base of Nails Inc's You're a Peach, which came free with Glamour Magazine quite a while back.  Then I drew a stripe down the middle of my nails with Layla's holo polish Coffee Love.  I'm not in love with the full nail application of the Layla holographic polishes, they're too prone to bald spots, but for this purpose it worked just fine.

I then made a border down the sides of that with my Precis brown striper polish, and there we have it!  A coat of Seche topped it off.

No sun today, but of course I can still find a place to show you that full holo goodness:
There we go, much better! I enjoyed wearing this very much, it felt just right for this late summer/early autumn time.

Here's one last pic, close up:
Don't forget to check out what the other talented ladies have to offer.  It's always amazing how different our designs are with the same brief!
