I finally jumped on the When Colours Collide bandwagon in time for a no stamping challenge. I am not 100% in love with my look but I guess that is part of the challenge, doing things you would not usually do. I also could not decide what to do, so went with skittle nails and a different look using black, red and/or purple on each nail.
Pointer finger: Zoya Aurora and Blaze (holographic polishes) with Essence Black is Back applied using a vinyl guide. The black lines on the corner lifted with the vinyl, guess Essence polishes dry too quickly but it looked ok with a corner missing so I just left it like that.
Middle finger: Zoya PixieDust in Carter and Oswin. I recently tried a gradient with Oswin and loved it so went for a similar look with Carter. It was already pretty chunky with layers of PixieDust so no extra black polish.
Ring finger: A gradient of Zoya Mira and Sally Hansen Red My Lips with Essence Black is Back.sponged on to one side.
Baby finger: A base of Essence Black is Back with Mauve-llous Fairy from the Hidden Stories collection. This one is cheating a little as I knew it was mostly purple with some red but did not remember the small blue and gold flecks in it. Overall a purple look though and no different than holo in my mind!
I completely forgot to take a separate shot of my thumb, but it was a smoosh of Zoya Mira (purple creme), Zoya Blaze (red holo) and Black is Back over a base of Red My Lips.

I’d be at a loss for what to do if I couldn’t stamp and had to do nail art. I like the look you came up with, especially the pointer finger.
I love this look. Simple, yet unique. Great choices!
These look so cool! I would never think to pair purple and red together, but it looks great here!
I love when people think outside of the nail art box. Great mani!
I love this group, it’s challenging and fun. It really makes you step out of your comfort zone.
I love the pointer and middle! I still have to think what to do with no stamping involved.
I love this!!
Simple & pretty!
