Golden Oldie Thursday - Day 7 - Chevron

The theme for round seven of the Golden Oldie Thursday is chevron.

For this mani I used a black base (one coat of a England Camelot), single chevron nail vinyls and one coat of Enchanted Polish Ciao Milano. Ciao Milano has a clear base filled with small multichrome hexes shifting from yellow over copper, pink, purple, blue to green. One coat provided a nice coverage over black, I'm sure it could be built up to opacity on it's own with about three coats.

This time I had some issues with my nail vinyls, but this was probably user error. I applied them on the complete hand at once, added Ciao Milano on all five fingers and started to remove the vinyls, but during removal they tore in the middle and took the black base with them, so I had to re-apply the black polish with a nail art brush at the chevron. So it seems the nail vinyls don't like to be soaked in polish for more than a few seconds (or was this a one time only problem? The next use will show).

Enchanted Polish are pretty hard to get nowadays (as you can see me bottle is an old one, when they weren't as htg) but if you're lucky they're available at Mei Mei's Signatures, Pshiiit and Big Cartel.
I'd recommend to follow the brand on Facebook or Twitter to get updates on restocks.

    1. I hope you get lucky, I've stopped trying to buy EP, it's so hard at the moment to get them. I really wish there would be an easy source to buy them...
