This week’s Golden Oldies theme is “chevrons.” Now, I really like chevron gradients, but I wanted something different (as always. I can’t ever just do the normal prompt!) so I settled on a fishtail (because that looks like a chevron, right?). Now, a while ago I had pinned an absolutely stunning fishtail mani from Nuthing But A Nail Thing, and had decided that whenever I had time to do a braid with 12 colors, I would do it. So, here we go…
Although my lines are not quite as even as hers, I am ok with this. As my boyfriend pointed out, I don’t have any dark oranges, so this really just looks like a yellow-orange-red-black rather than a true gradient. Darn. I probably should have done a blue or a purple version of this. Oh well. Still cool.
As I mentioned, there are 12 polishes here. I am not going to list them, but at least 6 of them are over a year old…the most recent acquisitions are 3 months old. If you want to know a specific color, ask!
I decided to spice things up a bit (read: I love sparkly things) so I added yellow, red, and black gems to my accent nail.
Hope you enjoyed these! Maybe next time I’ll use colors that I can turn into an easier gradient…oops! 😀
