Sparkly Silver Chevron Nails
I started with two coats of Fabulous Silver on all of my nails, and then I created the chevron look by applying two coats of Velvet Purple and Passion Pink. I actually attempted these chevrons a couple of times using tape to block off the silver shape, but the polish kept seeping under the tape. Some days I can get tape manis to work great, some days not… oh well. I ended up hand painting the pink and purple shapes with a small Wistonia #00 brush which actually worked out pretty well. Now that I have the smaller brushes I’m finding it much easier to do freehand art. (You’re actually going to see my most elaborate freehand art to-date in just a few days!)
Here’s a close-up shot that shows the details of the colors better, and it also shows off that super high-gloss shine that I got with the Pink Gellac Ultra Shine top coat.
The Pink Gellac by Chickettes gel polishes are now also available on Amazon.com! Add them to your wishlist for the upcoming holidays! :)
