Glidda Chevron

I only have a four day week but it's kickin' my can. I had grand things in mind for this mani, it turned out fine, but definitely didn't fulfill my ~vision~. I started with three coats of Orly's Plum. I then stamped the dot/criss-cross pattern from plate m71 with black konad. I couldn't get the full image picked up very well. I then used a coat of China Glaze Fast Forward, used Sally Hansen's chevron tip guides and added a coat of NYC clear topcoat above it so I could dunk it in LA Splash's black nail art glitter Onyx.


I was hoping more Fast Forward would smooth out the grit, even with two thick coats I could feel chunky-chunks. I'm ashamed as an admitted nail polish addict to say I kept this on for eight days fur to laziness. The tips wore off pretty quick due to the glitter not being a polish. Other than that it held up OK.
