Good morning, lovely readers! And hello to all my new followers... check out their blogs if you don't already follow them: MeMa's Manis, AllThatIsGorgeous, Glitter Obsession, I'm Still Thinking... & Kinetic Polish! And welcome to blog-less followers Marie, Marta, and Sally.
I hope you enjoy reading & looking! Today I have a purple chevron nail design. I had a few problems getting the stamps to transfer cleanly, but for the most part these look much better in person than they do in a close-up photo.
Unfortunately, even though I only painted them Monday night, I already had to take them off this morning! You can see I have a chip in the middle of my ring finger, the result of a tear in the nail. In addition, the polish on the other fingers started chipping off pretty badly last night. So, time to take off the polish and do a good file-down.
What was the culprit for the speedy chipping? I think it might have been my main color, Wet n Wild Eggplant Frost. I used two coats (I think?) for reasonable coverage, but my bottle is probably from the late '90s, so the formula is a bit off now. I stamped with a little ULTA mini in a metallic purple, and the chevron pattern from Bundle Monster image plate BM201. I'll have to use the design again soon, I really love how it turned out.
