33 Days Challenge - Day 8: Chevrons

Today's theme for the 33DC made me really happy. I don't exactly know why because I don't have anything specific for Chevrons, but it did. And when I'm happy, I immediately think of rainbows. So today I have some rainbow chevrons for you.

I started this mani with two coats of Sinful Shine - Tan Lines, a mauve - nude super glossy creme. It's very pigmented and opaque in one coat. I needed two only to fix my sloppy application. It is not a color that I would wear on it's own, but I thought it would make a great, neutral background for my colorful rainbow. Swatches show two coat, no top.

I then tried to decide if I could actually freehand some decent chevrons, but I decided against it. So I used Vivid Lacquer VL010 Plate that has two wonderful and large chevron designs and several polishes from the Metallic collection by Kleancolor. I painted each line of the design with a different color, scrapped and stamped. The result wasn't bad, but it also wasn't as bright as I wanted it to be.

So now I decided to use those stamping as my guides for the pattern lines, and I painted over them with the same colors and a striping brush. I liked the results much better!

I like Sinful Shine - Tan Lines also on its own, but I'm sure I would add something, something like flowers... :-) Great happy rainbow chevron manicure! :-)
