31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Day 5: Blue Nails

So, I have this terrible habit of writing up a big long post that I spend a good amount of time carefully pondering and thinking about, making sure the wording is just right and exactly what I want to say...and then I'll delete it. And I don't know why on earth I do that! Haha today I was trying to write the intro of this post and began talking about how I felt nail art had helped me figure out what I do and don't like when it comes to designs and taste...but when I tried explaining it, I realized I don't have as great a grasp on that as I thought I did! Go figure ;) 

Anyway, the whole point of writing that scratched intro was to express my love of funky and different designs in nail art while attempting to maintain a good taste level that isn't too outrageous and in your face...which is how I am in real life anyway. At the same time, I really do love doing art that pushes me outside of my comfort zone and is sometimes just weird and different. Maybe you all won't agree, but I think tonight's mani is funky and different but still keeps with my style for the most part. 

Now that we've gotten through my long winded ramblings, onto the actual nails! Tonight is the latest in the 31 Day Challenge and it's Blue Nails for tonight. And I'm actually on time today!

I painted triangles? arrow? an outward gradient of varying blues. I had originally intended to fill out the entire nail, but I ran out of room and wasn't able to implement that concept. 

The pattern sort of reminds me of a mix of almost mod and 70's styles? I don't know if that's possible, but that's what I'm going with! 

This was an all Zoya mani, with a base color of Jacqueline. 
The blues (from light to dark) are: 
-- Kristen --
-- Yummy --
-- Breezi --
-- Natty --
What do you see in these nails?

Happy Polishing! :)
