"Glam" Challenge

For those of you who are not familiar there is a Facebook Fan Page out there called "The Lacquer Legion" https://www.facebook.com/thelacquerlegion.  Each month they present a challenge for nail artist (or nail art fanatics) to complete and present on their Fan Page.

April's challenge is "Glam".  When I think of glamorous nail art, I think of golds, shimmer, simple, and sleek designs.  That is how I came up with my "Glam" design.  Here is a little tutorial on how to achieve my glamorous chevron manicure.

Base and top coat
Two colors of polish
Striping tape

After applying a base coat apply your base color and let it dry completely.  For my base color I used China Glaze's ‐ Swing Baby.

Once your base color has dried completely tape a v‐shape at your cuticle and outline with a second v‐shape a little wider than that.  If you want to do an accent nail apply v‐shapes down the length of your nail.  This is what I came up with…

With your second color paint your entire  nail except the very center v‐shape.  For my second color I used OPI's ‐ Yodel Me on My Cell.   On the accent nail I painted the entire nail.  Be sure to do one nail at a time, paint it and then remove the tape before it dries too much.  Add a top coat to give it that extra shine.

I hope you enjoyed my "Glam" nails.  Checkout The Lacquer Legion and join in all the nail art fun for next months challenge if you haven't already.  See you next time.
