Happy Friday! I am quite excited that it is weekend. It’s going to be a good one. My brother is coming today and I have some fun plans this weekend ( I will share next week, promise). I hope you are excited about the weekend too! Let’s get this show on the road 🙂
I have seen many ideas similar to this but the one that really inspired me was this pin by falguni_nails. The blue really drew my attention (but don’t worry, there will be a pink version at some point too :P). I completely messed up the first try but then I changed it up a little and this is what I came up with.
I started with 3 coats of China Glaze – Liquid crystal on my pinky and ring and thumb and left that to dry completely. I then used 2 coats of Sinful Colors – Sugar Rush on my middle and 2 coats of Sinful Colors – Endless blue on my index. I then used my chevron tape guides from Born Pretty Store on my ring finger and filled in the spaces with first Sinful Colors – Snow me white, then Sinful Colors – Sugar rush and ended with Sinful Colors – Endless blue on the tip. I pulled off the guides as soon as I could while the polish was still wet. Topcoated everything and good to go.
I realise I also haven’t show you liquid crystal before so here it is.
China Glaze – Liquid crystal
This looks so much nicer in real life than it does on any photo. It is super sparkly. This is 3 coats with no topcoat. Dries with a slight texture (because of the glitter) but with topcoat it is beautifully smooth (and sparkly). It is mostly blue but has pieces of multi coloured glitter in there as well. Sooo beautiful.
What do you think of the chevron gradient? Are you also surprised by how drawn I am to blue lately. I must stop that. Pink rules! 😛
Thanks for reading.
