OMD2 - 31DC - Chevron (20th)



Ok I'm behind and I'm not even posting in order anymore lol. I didn't have any time to do a mani today but I did this one in advance a while ago so here ya go! :) 

I saw @centralparkkitty do this design and decided to give it a shot using this pictorial by @m_a_tom. I don't think mine turned out as well though :( I had trouble getting my tape to stick down. I used acetone to clean up the lines after I removed the tape but I'm still not that happy with it. It was especially hard to clean up Victoriana since she left a shimmery mess behind lol... but she's a beauty! I mucked up my ring finger too by not painting all the way to the tip. I kind of just stopped right after the tape border so there is a blob right in the middle there... I should have spread it out more! The 31DC really puts the pressure on and forces you to be creative since it goes so quickly... but I feel like my quality has also gone down from being so rushed and not having the time to redo manis

What I Used:
China Glaze - Sea Spray x2
Butter London - Victoriana
Scotch tape
Striping tape

Here are the other prompts if you're interested in joining this mayhem lol! Full rules here

  2. I can't even fathom trying a 31 day challenge like this--maybe when I'm retired, but even then, not sure I could do it.

    Love this combination of Sea Spray and Victoriana you did!
