I wanted to do something quick and simple. I started with 3 coats of LA Colors- Energy Source. Then one coat of NYC. After that dried, I used Scotch tape to tape off my triangles. Then did 2 coats of LA Colors- Treasure Island. I made sure to peel the tape off carefully before the polish dried. then did 2 coats of NYC. I love how they turned out, except I realize now with a couple dots, they could be Christmas trees! I'll have to remember that for next month!
