In this month’s Polish Party challenge we’re doing chevrons.
I usually do three-coloured chevrons, splitting my nails equally into three. I have even done some as the latest manicure I did, for the GOT Polish challenge. So, I thought I’d try something a little different and try some chevron French tips.
Firstly, I applied my base coat of OPI My Vampire Is Buff. It took 3 coats to become opaque enough for my liking.
Then, for the chevrons, I did it first with chevron guides, but about twenty seconds after top-coating it, I dented it and in a fit of pique, removed it all. I could just have re-done that one nail, but was obviously in a mood for making things more difficult than they need be.
When I came to re-do it, I chose to freehand it, as I didn’t have as much time, and I didn’t have the luxury of waiting for it all to dry before using the nail guides. It’s therefore not as good as it was when I did it using the guides, but it’s not too shabby either.
I added Jess Harmony first, which is a lovely shimmery, pale copper colour. This is the first time I’ve used a Jess polish, which you can buy in Poundland. They’re a bit stinky, so perhaps not free from all the chemical nasties, but they have some lovely colours.
Then I added a coat of Revlon Classy, which is a browny peach, a bit like a pale Plasticine colour.
Despite the angular lines, the colours make it look really quite delicate, which isn’t usually me.
Here’s everyone else’s February manicures:
- Colours: three coats of OPI My Vampire Is Buff, one coat of Jess Harmony, one coat of Revlon Classy
- Top coat: Glisten & Glow HK Girl
