Alphabet Nail Art Challenge: T for Triangles

Hello lovely readers! I am soo swamped with ideas for this holiday, I just don't think I have time to do them all. Especially now that I have this horrible flu, ugh I hate getting sick. So for today I have for you my next Alphabet Nail Art Challenge: T for Triangles. I've been dying to do these, since I've seen everyone doing them, I wanted to jump in as well.
Now that I had this nail art challenge, I took up the chance to do them. Then I saw this awesome tutorial by nail art blogger Gimimimi, I knew were to begin. Though I wanted to do a little something different, just a little gold to bright the day. So here they are: 
For the base, I applied two coats of OPI Alpine Snow (not pictured, oops!). Once the polish dries, which is key, I used Gimimimi tutorial to add the striping tape (also not pictured, oopsy! ) accordingly for the thumb, middle finger and pinky. I for one can say this can be very irritating, since I have tendency to be very impatient. However, the end results are worth it!
As for the forefinger and ringer finger, using a makeup sponge I added SpaRitual Love, SpaRitual Reverse and Essie Warm & Toasty Turtleneck. Then I dabbed it onto the nails (I used the same method over the stripping tape). To add some sparkle I applied Out the Doors Hologram Top Coat (I did this to all the nails). Then over the stripping tape nails I applied one coat Essie's Good as Gold
 Once I removed the tapes, I added the lines with Essie's Good as Gold, using a nail art stripping brush. I then sealed the design with  Duri- Super Fast Dry Through Top Coat, that's it! Overall I'm really happy how these turned, and definitely will be doing these again!
Hope all of you enjoyed my post today!
