Glam Chevrons

Do you ever get an idea in your head for a mani and walk around thinking about it till you can execute? That was me, prepping for this mani. I'm happy to report that it came out exactly like I wanted it to. Mani success!!




For this look I used Orly Glam and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Without a Stitch. Glam is a jelly polish filled with red sparkles that is easily opaque after 2 coats. On the Orly website they list Glam as a purple jelly with sparkles, but it is definitely red in my book, a great color for fall. Without a Stich is a beautiful tan creme that applies easily. 

To create the chevrons I used these stencils from Sticky Nails (found on Etsy).  I bought these on my own, and Iona doesn't have a clue that I'm saying this, but they are the BOMB! You get great coverage, crisp lines, and awesome designs, but be sure to stick them to your skin first so they don't pull your polish off.  Also Iona is super sweet as my original package got lost. I let her know and within 3 days a new set had arrived in the mail. 

I can't wait to show you all what I'm working on for the blog. Let's just say it involves a lot of swatching and begins with Sep and ends with X. ;-)

Enjoy and until next time, Amy Lee
