Hellooo! I’m so pleased to be writing a guest post for the lovely Jessica at Love for Lacquer! An honor indeed 🙂 I wanted not only to showcase some of the newer polishes released lately but also to show you one of the trends that are hot this year. I adore the newest OPI NYC Ballet and Spider-man collections, so I picked two of those to show you.
I wanted to put them together with some nail art that I haven’t tried yet, so I looked up nail trends for 2012 and found this! Reverse french chevron. Here is my take on the reverse french chevron, with a twist! I added zigzags to them because I just bought all these craft scissors from Amazon and needed to use one 🙂
I used Gelous base coat and 2 coats of OPI Care to Danse from the New York City Ballet 2012 collection, which is a dreamy jelly/sheer lilac. Gah. I.am.in.love!!! After this was COMPLETELY dry, I used my zigzag edging scissors to cut tape for chevrons. OPI Into the Night from the 2012 Spider-Man Collection as my contrasting color, is an amazing slightly frosted/metallic deep blue. Like, a night blue, yeah!! 😀 I used 2 coats of this as well.
Hope you enjoyed my post! And thanks for having me at Love for Lacquer! xo, Victoria

Love the craft scissors and tape idea. It makes nail art accessable for the art challenged.
