Polish Party February Challenge - Chevrons

Hi everyone,

This month's Polish Party theme is Chevrons. I'll admit that I'm not too keen on chevrons so wasn't as excited as I usually am for Polish Party this month. However I am pleased with how my design turned out and enjoyed the challenge of incorporating the gradient as it's something I've always struggled with.

Here's what I came up with (there's loads of pictures, sorry!) ...

I used Models Own Hedonist, Tropical Sun and Lemon Meringue for the gradient and Models Own Artistix nail pen for the chevrons. I then used Jacava London's matte top coat for a matte finish. I felt like using bright colours as I've been wearing blue on my nails a lot lately. I love the gradient because it looks like a sunset and reminds me of the sunset mosaic design I did a while ago (you can see it here).

I found the gradient very difficult to do, I've never been able to do it properly. It was very messy too! I'm pleased with the result though, I thought it was going to go very wrong!

Let me know what you think of my design by leaving a comment below - I'd love to know if you like it too! And don't forget you can check out the rest of Polish Party's designs using the links at the bottom of the page.

I hope you like my nails, I'm very happy with them! I wanted to do something special as it is The Naily Mail's 1st Birthday today (yay!). Click here to see my special birthday post :)
