Well, it is a dreary Sunday afternoon here , so I guess I am in kinda a "blue" mood, hence today's mani. I decided to try my first tape manicure. Also an untried polish that I have had for awhile, Orly Sweet Peacock. It is really "foily" looking, is that really a word???? Anyway, I did my clear base coat and then 2 coats of the Sweet Peacock...boy, that is horrible to clean up off your cuticles :( I then cut a piece of painters tape and cut that piece in half, and placed on my nail so the pointed end was towards the tip of my nail...about 2/3rds way up my fingernail. I used Sinful Colors Black on Black and painted the top 2/3rds of my nail that was not covered by the tape, and removed the tape immediately, making the Chevron. On my accent nails I made a second Chevron with Orly Luxe. After looking at them, they needed that "something", which turned out to be a gold stripe. Then I was happy!!!
