The weekend is here... yay!! I have my first attempt at a chevron/fishtail mani to share with you. I followed this post/tutorial by Sarah at Chalkboard Nails. Sarah does some super-duper awesome nail art and now she's starting to post video tutorials on youtube. She makes everything look so simple. Let's see how well I did..
An Essie Fishtail/Chevron:
No too bad for my first try. I used all Essies for this mani. I started with two coats of Fear or Desire (orange), after that dried, I used two coats of Mojito Madness (mint), and finally three coats of Off the Shoulder (Pink). Off the Shoulder probably wasn't the wisest choice for the final coat because it's a lot more sheer than the other two and the layers were getting thick toward the end of the manicure, but I really love this combo of colors. Essie has been impressing me lately with their "less bland" newer colors.
Just for the heck of it, I added Essie's Matte About You the second day I wore this mani. I like this look also :)
Thanks again to Sarah at Chalkboard Nails for the awesome tutorial. I'm going to try this ruffle manicure next!! :)
Have a wonderful weekend.. I know I will! My husband and I are celebrating our 5th Wedding Anniversary today <3
