Friday Triad: Inspired by Cambria

It's Triad time again!! It was Michelle's turn to choose this month and there was a huuuuge discussion about this mani. She had it pinned but the pic didn't have a watermark, so we didn't know how to credit. We then found one done by @nailsbycambria on pinterest, but we couldn't find it on Instagram. So if you click on her name, it will take you to Insta and here is the link to pinterest to the mani.

I decided to use my gel polishes for this, as I wanted to use transparent chameleon flakies I got in my SS box. I have one coat of Gel-it jack black on all my nails. Cured it and used the applicator to apply the flakies.
I applied the flakies the flakies on the whole nail on my thumb and pinky. On my index, middle and ring finger I used some vinyls from becauseishop for the triangles.
It's not perfect, I got some of the flakies out of the border, but not a lot. Once I was done I top coated, cured and then freehanded the matte top coat. And one last cure.
That's it! Super simple and I got loads of compliments on this, since the shift with the flakies are insane. Green to blue to purple and there's even some yellow flakes in there too. I decided to do a wear test with the gel and I've had this on for two weeks now. And I'm dying to take it off!

What do you think? Do pop over to Michelle and Joyce and give them some love!

Thanks for reading!
