Why Are You Copying Yourself?

It's true. I've completely plagiarised myself. This mani is very nearly an exact copy of one that I did just 3 weeks ago. What can I say? I love black and I love glequins and I just got dayum love this style of manicure!!



I didn't use a base colour, just a base coat of OPI Nail Envy. I used a W7 Black and a striping brush to create the chevrons at the base of my nail, then filled in the rest of the space using the brush straight from the bottle.
To make the glequins stick, I painted on a coat of clear polish and attached them while it was still tacky using a toothpick dipped in said clear polish to make it tacky.
Finally, I added a few top coats and it was all good to go!

  4. I love this look! But, I bought the big hex glitter recently and can't figure out how you get them all on so straight?? I have the hardest time placing them by hand and they are never lined up ;/
