Today’s GOT polish challenge is chevron nails!
My first attempt at this was with my Messy Mansion chevron stamping plate, I tried to do a black and white gradient with the stamp in reverse over the top, unfortunately my white polish isn’t so good over black and it all went grey I really like the look and I’ll be trying it with different polishes…
My second attempt was a lot more successful!
I free handed these! Not a single scrap of tape in sight! I was expecting this to be a horrible mess but I’m honestly really surprised at how well these turned out!
I started out with two coats of White on White from China Glaze, then I used Style Slave from 17 for the first chevron followed by Grey from Barry M, and finally Black On Black from Sinful Colors.
I overlapped the different polishes to make sure the lines where even. Like a very simple fishtail braid mani!
The oldest polish I used is Style Slave, I must have owned this one for at least 10 years! Barry M Grey I have had for about three years, the Black on Black from Sinful Colors and White on White from China Glaze I haven’t had s as long!
Don’t forget to have a look at the GOT polish pinterest page
Here’s s quick recap of the rules:
- The polish you use should be at least one year old.
- If you haven’t been a polishaholic that long, you can use the oldest polishes you have.
- The polish should be previously used, but if you’re stuck, you could free a yearling from Mount Untried.
- You can use more than 1 polish as long as it fits the theme and the rules.
