N.A.I.L. - March - Chevron

Hi all!

A couple of weeks ago my Kickstarter order for the Out of this World collection from Lucky 13 Lacquer arrived. I spent some of my birthday money on it back in January. The Kickstarter project did not close until the end of January, so I knew I had a bit of waiting to do. Kyoti, creative mind behind L13L, could not order the ingredients until after it ended. I wore this 3 weeks ago... and I didn't edit the photos until today. Editing photos is not my favourite thing and I often don't feel like doing it *winks*. But I got it done!

From left to right:
  • L.A. Girl - 3D Effects - GNL306 Brilliant Blue
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Dark Matter
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Gamma Burst
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward

On my thumb and ring finger I'm wearing two coats of Brilliant Blue. All the other nails have a single (yes, only one!) coat of Dark Matter. I'm very pleased with this one coat black! On top of the black I added a coat of Gamma Burst, which is a blue and sea green flakie topper. Using some You Polish chevron french tip nail vinyls I added my chevrons. Of course I forgot to photograph the sheet...

Because the nail vinyls are meant to be used as french tips, they are a bit wide. They stick down very well though and were easy enough to remove leaving staight lines.

And of course a close up of Gamma Burst... isn't it gorgeous? Just a shame of my ink stained finger... (I write with a purple ink in my Lamy Safari and I nearly always get some on my hands after refilling it...)

I'm not too convinced about the combination with Brilliant Blue, but I do love Gamma Burst!

More chevrons down here!


  1. These are awesome!! I love the colors together!

  2. Nice chevron and the colors look good together.

  3. Dark Matter and Gamma Burst? I mean, just the names make me grin. BEAUTIFUL mani!

    1. *chuckles* You'll love the other names in that collection then ;)
