NOTD: Inspired by another mani

Hi guys!

Today I've done a mani inspired by Selena D's uber-famous gel mani. I'm sure many of you have seen it all over the internet, especially on Instagram and Pinterest. First, here's my take on it. I intially tried to do chevrons, but I think I need more practice first... They turned out horribly! So instead I stamped using a Winstonia plate :)


The coral I used is Maybelline Coral Crush (my favorite!), Lime Crime Milky Ways stamped with Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Black Out, and the gold is China Glaze Angel Wings.


And here's the original! Photo (c) Selena D. Clicking the image takes you back to her blog :) I've wanted to do a 'copy cat' mani of this for so long and I'm glad I finally did. Now I just need to practice my chevrons!

  1. I LOVE your take on these!! I found the chevron to be difficult too, that's why I got the decals. This is so cute! :D
