Hmmm... I'm not sure I'm completely, 100% in love with this. I mean, I loved the idea and have wanted to create it for a few weeks now but again, I'm not sure it came out exactly how I was hoping. I like it but I think I may have to give it another go with a bit of a different technique. I went with a Y shape over a simple V because the latter had a French manicure feel that I wasn't aiming for. I think I just wanted the silver Y a bit thinner but my brush was too large. I may have to invest in this fun 15 piece nail art brush kit if I want to continue any of this nail art.

Here's what I used:




* OPI Suzi Says Feng Shui
* ESSI Lapis of Luxury ~ my favorite nail color, Summer 2010
* LA Colors Art Deco polish ~ Silver with long, thin brushes.
* Chanel Brillance Extreme top coat ~ or your favorite top coat


* 2 coats of your darkest color {OPI Suzi Says Feng Shui}

Note: you'll want this to dry COMPLETELY so do it the day before or early in the morning, then finish up the rest afternoon.


* Prepare 10 small pieces of Scotch tape and using the hard edges, tape off your triangle.

Note: My tape is apparently very strong. If yours is too, I suggest, sticking each piece on your clothes to de-stickify it ;) It will be easier to remove in the end and less chance of ruining your first coats.


* Using your lighter shade, {ESSI Lapis of Luxury} fill in your triangle and let dry. Best to do one hand at a time and snip your tape pieces down once on your hand so as to not tape to one another creating a claw of sorts.
