Oh I’ve been dying to share this manicure with you all for a week now but because I used Picture Polish Starry Night in it, I had to wait until the polish had been released. It has been killing me because it was easily my favourite manicure of the last 6 months! It’s nothing intricate, it was just high impact and eye catching!
So for my ring nail I started with three coats of Picture Polish Starry Night and then I added white chevron vinyl decals that I bought a little while ago from Make It Stick on Etsy. I’d just like to take a second (or a minute) to say what a fantastic idea these decals are. I adore chevrons but I’m way too lazy to be cutting out tape with pinking shears to create this look using tape and two polishes. You get 20 decals for $5 in a colour of your choice…I used them on 2 nails as a feature so I can get 10 manicures out of a pack of these, 50c a manicure? Yes please! I did need to trim them but I found this quite easy using cuticle trimmers. My only advice is make sure to seal the edges properly with top coat. I missed the end of one stripe and it slowly peeled up and caught on everything. By the time I added a second coat of top coat that night, I got the strange little air bubbles you can see in these photos. I have three packs in black, white and grey which I figured would pretty much cover everything I would use them for in combination with a colour polish.
The rest of my nails are two coats of Picture Polish Marine and then two coats of Shimmer Polish Sarah (I will have a straight swatch of this in upcoming weeks…I have a mountain of Shimmer Polishes to show you all!). It’s taking everything for me not to put this exact manicure on again, I got so many compliments on it, even from executives at work (I decided to take the fact that we don’t get casual Friday ever Friday into my own hands by wearing casual nails instead!) I really love that anyone can do this too. Not to mention black and white accent nails go with pretty much everything, but I would recommend a bold colour on your other nails to make a real statement.
