I only have one 'V' polish but I knew I wanted to use it today because it's a colour I really rather like. Valiant by L'Oreal is a lovely tarnished silver/gun metaly sort of colour that I used as a base for some chevron nail art-because chevrons are essentially just 'Vs' anyway, right?
I had to be pretty valiant with this mani-it's not a difficult one at all, and I was using some French mani guide stickers I got on Ebay to make the chevron shapes so should have been a doddle but I had so many problems with it. I nearly gave up on it several times but persevered in the end and it's turned out OK. It's annoying that it doesn't show how much effort went into it though-it took me an hour and a half in the end! AAH.
Anyway. Other polishes used were Collection-Look At Me!, Barry M-Mango, Barry M-Key Lime, Barry M-Guava and Barry M-Prickly Pear (Haha, guess what collection I bought the other day?!). I love the effects you can get mixing different types of polishes-in this case a shimmery metallic and some cremes.
By the time this was done I really didn't care about the wrinkles you can see in some of them-I wasn't starting again! It's not perfect but it'll do, and sometimes that's the best you can hope for! I dunno...the colours are awesome but I'm not really feeling it after all the trouble it caused me!
Hoping for better luck next week! In the meantime, check out all other ladies' entries on the Inlinkz below =)
