China Glaze's Turned Up Turquoise Chevron Mani

Hello Sunshines!

Today I have a quick manicure for you using China Glaze's Turned Up Turquoise as the main color.

To start this manicure I used two coats of Butter London's West End Wonderland which is that gorgeous gold glitter you see peeking through at the top of the nail. I love the fine grade of the glitter in this polish because it doesn't leave much texture which is just what you need for layering. Plus it dries super quick. Next I used Illamasqua's Scorch to paint a big X on all my nails except the ring finger. I filled in the bottom of the nail from the X down to make the first chevron. I tried to keep this to one coat because I didn't want it to be too thick. Scorch worked pretty well for this. I just had a few streaks that I went back and touched up a bit,

On the ring finger I put a coat of Formula X's Law of Attraction polish on first, which added to the gold glitter and had a few darker glitter specks mixed in. I was going to just leave that as the accent nail, but then I went ahead and used China Glaze's Turned Up Turquoise to to make the first chevron on my ring finger.

I set those coats of polish with my Out The Door fast drying top coat. Then I used Turned Up Turqoise to finish do the last chevron on my nails. I did the same thing with Scorch on my ring finger as well.

Hope you like the end product! You can find me on twitter and Instagram as Geniewtdbh. 

Enjoy these last few summer days!
