Valentine dripping chevron nails

Hello there guys!! I hope you are doing well, unfortunately for me I'm back to school tomorrow which is a sad time not gonna lie. I would've been back earlier but I'll explain why in another post. School is always full steam ahead and I have so many things I have to do -_- As I always say, after a while you might not see me much haha. I know it's much too early for Valentine's things but this colour scheme evokes those thoughts.

I was so taken with dripping chevrons the last time I did them that I had to do them again but with a different colour scheme and chunkier chevrons. I'm not impressed, I really need to revise that colour scheme cause it doesn't work and the thinner chevrons look much slicker and better. Overall I'm still pretty happy with this design cause the concept is cool but nothing special.

I did the chevrons randomly with toothpicks in a zig-zag fashion. I added the drips after finishing all the chevrons. I made the mistakes of putting colours too close to each other beside each other so I had to add sparkles in some form. This is matte again, I've seriously matted everything now that I have a proper matte topcoat and everything looks so much sweeter when it's matte.
