Chevron, Checker, & Stripes Unite!

Press Sample Okay, so this post wasn't technically posted on Wednesday but it's only 1am and I haven't been to bed yet. That has to count for something right? #LateNightBlogSesh!!

Anyway, all procrastinating aside, I recently got some interesting nail art stickers from Sticky Nails on Etsy and felt like nail artin' it up in this bitch. Here's the end result!

Sticky Nails has five different sticky nail art stencils to choose from, the particular pattern I used is the chevron design.

I didn't want to do the typical  chevron mani so decided to get creative with the different sizes on the sheet and then freehand some checker print and stripes.

And if you have long nails like me these will fit with no problem!

Iona advises that you let your base color dry completely before you place the stickers on your nail bed. To speed up the process I used Dazzle Dry Top Coat over my white base.

Want some product porn? Of course you do!

butter LONDON Cotton Buds (white base color), Wet N Wild Wild Shine Black Creme (chevrons), Dare To Wear Violetta (stripes and checker print), Illamasqua Nomad (stripes and checker print).

Chevron stencils nail stickers are $9.50 on Sticky Nails Etsy Shop and there's free shipping anywhere in the US.

I think this is my first chevron mani. I like. Do you?
Tune in. Drop out. Love polish.
