Before we get started with today’s post, today is the very last day to enter my giveaway to win a $250 gift card so make sure to head on over and enter! I’d been itching to use the awesome Opalescent Elements collection by Smitten Polish in some nail art and decided to try out a fun flakie chevron look!
I began with two coats of a white polish (Cirque Colors Carpe Diem). Once that was fully dry, I applied some chevron nail vinyls from What’s Up Nails and pressed them down on my nails. On top of the vinyls, I used the brush to paint on coats of Smitten Polish Ignis Opal, Smitten Polish Terra Opal, Smitten Polish Aqua Opal and Smitten Polish Aer Opal, being careful to try to keep each individual color within a line. I then used a pair of nail art tweezers to quickly remove the vinyls while the polish was still wet and finished everything up with another coat of Out The Door.
Overall, I liked how it turned out although you can’t really tell that it’s flakie polishes unless you’re really close to it, haha. What do you think of this mani? Let me know in the comments!
