That last picture washed out my hands a lot, but I like that you can see the shimmer in the bottle. So this is my first attempt at this type of manicure, which is a deviation of the half-moon using chevrons. A few things went wrong, but overall I'm happy with it. The base is China Glaze Snap My Dragon (which sounds dirty, but I suspect isn't meant to be) and the main color here is China Glaze Fancy Pants. So clearly Fancy Pants didn't cover well in some spots. That's my fault, but it's really only noticeable close-up like this. I freehanded the lines using a little brush:
It wasn't as much of a pain in the ass as I thought it might be, actually. Against all odds, my right hand (my dominant hand) looks pretty decent too. I like the almost art deco feel this has to it, and I can't wait to try it again.
In terms of the polishes, the formula on both was really nice. I've seen people describe Snap My Dragon as a red with pink shimmer, but to me it just looks straight-up fuchsia with more pink shimmer. Fancy Pants is freaking incredible, sort of an indigo color with pink shimmer throughout.
They came next to each other in the Blooming Brights half of Avant Garden and I thought they really needed to be used together in a manicure.
So, chevrons: semi-success.
Procrastination: EPIC SUCCESS.
Alright, back to the grind.
