NOTD: February 25th

 Sticking to the "vampy" colors, I wanted to do something with Revlon Vixen, but not just plain nail color, because I have been doing that a lot lately.

 So I decided to venture and try out Chevron nails. I thought I'd do at least one accent nail.

 I have this theory about manis that are cursed since the moment you think about doing them. Well this one was one of them. And by this I mean I'll smudge my nails all over the place over and over again without ever being done with that mani! 

 That was the case with this one, most nails were done and perfect with Revlon Vixen, but for my accent nail I decided to go with Essie Sand Tropez for contrast. I did the accent nail on my ring finger and I kept on smudging it! When it was finally dry and I was finally done with a perfect chevron, the top coat dragged the color and screwed it up! Ughh I was SO mad! But I didn't give up! At the end it wasn't as perfect as I would want it to be, but at that point I was just so tired that I would take anything.

 So as you can see, it's definitely not perfect, but you get the point. I'm OK with the color combination, but it's not my favorite. I wanted to try to do something more serious and not so colorful. Not like there's something wrong with colorful, I LOVE colorful, but I wanted a change at least for one mani.

  I did this with regular transparent tape.

All nails, but ring finger: 2 coats of Revlon's Vixen.
Ring Finger: 2 coats of Essie's Sand Tropez, "chevron" part 1 coat of Revlon's Vixen.
Top coat: Seche Vite

 I know it's not the best, it's not even close to decent, but it was this or no mani at all, so I decided to go with this.
