Distressed Chevrons

Hi everyone. How are you all? I have had a very long day today, but I have a day off tomorrow so I am looking forward to that.

I have a manicure to show you today which involved the melding together of two techniques (I felt like pushing the boat out you see lol). I came across this image online and I thought I could recreate it with a mixture of the dry brushing technique and some chevron stickers.. so that is what I did :).

I started with a base of Sally Hansen - Without a Stitch and using the dry brush technique I roughly applied Barry M - Almond over the top. Once this was completely dry I applied my chevron stickers and filled in the gaps using OPI - Can't Find My Czechbook, China Glaze - Metro Pollen-tin, OPI - Can't Afjord Not To and Essie - Angora Cardi.

I was pretty happy with these. They took quite a while but they were fairly simple to do, and the colour combinations are endless for these. I may have to give these another go at some point. 

Let me know what you think in the comments.

See you next time.
