Fishtail/Chevron Essie Mani

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
