Lovely Chevrons

YOU GUYS. I had SUCH a hard time completing this manicure but i LOVE it. Go figure!


I started with the base of another new-to-me ILNP, Ski Lodge. Ever since Mentality went belly-up and nails-down (ohhh my poor nails) I have been looking for a scattered dark green holo to replace one I got from them that I loved. I think I have found it!


Ski Lodge is a dark heather green (almost a dark olive rather than a dark emerald) with a ridiculous amount of larger holo shards and glitters and maybe some gold shimmer. I can’t even tell, there is so much glitter and depth to this! I am showing 3 coats, although I really could have stopped at two. It makes me happy.


I then grabbed another new Born Pretty Store stamping plate, BP-X06, and had a really difficult time picking what pattern to use and what color to stamp! I didn’t want to cover the glory that was Ski Lodge, and I always do green+gold so I wanted to change things up. I think I tried 5 different patterns and colors before I realized I could do something more subtle…like a silver-green-blue stamping multichrome over the dark green holo! So I went and grabbed Mutagen by ILNP and added using the chevron stamp.


Mutagen is not super opaque on its own, so the fact that you can clearly see the pattern (which I was really worried wouldn’t happen) is a testament to how well etched this plate is. Go plate! I added the LOVE stamp too, just for fun. I was going to use a light pink, but as it turns out neither of my two light pink polishes stamp well over dark green. Go figure.


If you want to pick up this stamping plate with all its fun geometric patterns, head over to the Born Pretty Store where its $1.99! Hope you enjoyed!
