Golden Oldie Thursday - Chevron

Hi all!

Today we have chevrons... but subtle ones. And a bit sparkly.

Polishes I used:
  • Catrice - 890 How I Matt Your Mother
  • Miss Helen - unknown

How I Matt Your Mother is a so-called "brushed metal effect" polish. It dries matte as the name suggests and is a purple on the greyish scale. I got it somewhere in 2012. How I got the Miss Helen polish I have no clue. It's old. Miss Helen used to be HEMA's make-up name range, but they changed it to simply state HEMA a few years ago. It's a holographic microglitter top coat, the base looks purple, but it's super sheer.

I'm wearing two coats of How I Matt Your Mother with the holo topper on top. I used some chevron stickers I got a local mish-mash store (the kind you can get on eBay as well) that did not stick that well. So excuse the not so crisp chevron lines. I didn't top coat this to keep the matte versus gloss chevrons. On my thumb I simply coated the entire nail with the holo topper. Sparkly!

The last photo is intentionally left blurry to show the holo sparkliness.

Curious about other chevrons? Go check below!
