Hey there guys!! I hope you are doing fantastic, school has come and ruined everything :P Also I am fabulous at embarrassing myself in everything I do :/ Today I have some simple nail art I have never tried before simply because I thought I wouldn't like it. The chevron/fishtail manicure, and I think it's a really great design. I was wrong once again.
My ring finger was the result of a mistake, I wanted a glitter accent, but no glitter was going to build up by itself opaque. So I used a white base and that worked, but once I tried it again for another colour it was 6 coats and I knew it wouldn't last so I pushed it off. I proceeded with Metallic 4 Life again, the rejected glitter was Orly - Go Deeper.
Turquoise: Essie - Turquoise and Caicos
Hot Pink: OPI - Charged Up Cherry
Green: China Glaze - Re-Fresh Mint
Pale Purple: Essie - Lilacism
Light Blue: Revlon - Blue Lagoon
Pink: OPI - Japanese Rose Garden
Dark Purple: OPI - Plum And Get It
Shimmery Blue: OPI - Sea You In Hollywood
Black Glitter: OPI - Metallic 4 Life
Pink Glitter: OPI - Excuse Moi! (OPI PARTY!!!)
White Base: Models Own - Snow White
I wanted to use more opaque polishes (makes thing SO much easier). I've been wary of Turquoise and Caicos for quite a while. I wanted to love it when I got it, but I didn't. It's such a me colour. I thought it took a million coats and bubbles badly. But I tried it again and 3 coats for opacity (2 coats was not going to suffice though) and the bubbles weren't too bad (I was more patient, but I am not a patient person). It's great for jelly sandwiches though.
