In my last post I talked about this mani that I saw from Sarah at Chalkboard Nails. I had tried this swooping-v technique on a few previous mani's and when I saw that she layered it with different colors I was even more thrilled! (Again I will say that Sarah's blog is well worth checking out if you haven't already).
So I took this idea of layering the swooped-v's and combined it with some colors that I saw on this maxi dress at Target (side note: I tried the dress on and the bodice doesn't fit my bosoms, otherwise it would have come home with me instantly!)...
Colors Used: E.L.F. - Coral Dream, Julep - Robin, Love & Beauty - Purple
I love love love this combination of colors and I want to wear this mani all the time! I did 2 coats of the Coral Dream (which I really think should be named Peach Dream because it barely passes as a coral) and then 1 coat of Robin and Purple. I topped it off with Julep's Fast Dry Topcoat and I was good to go. I did this mani on Saturday, so I sadly had to remove it for church on Sunday (hence why Sunday's nails were a chevron/fishtail frenchie... it all come full circle lol). I was a little bummed but I definitely plan on doing this again in the near future. If you're interested in achieving this look it really is fairly easy. Sarah has a video tutorial that shows you step by step how to do it and she adds some great tips as well :)

So what do you think? Will you try this out?
Until next time!
