Barry M Chevrons

I've been busy working on some festive designs for you but we like to make sure we mix things up a bit in December too. Not everyone wants to adorn their nails with Christmas themed designs throughout the entire month (we do!) Today's design is another quick stencil mani using my chevron vinyls from Nail Mail UK. 

Chevron designs have been around for ages and are not going anywhere. They're so cute and super versatile. I've done almost the exact same mani before but alternating colours and it looks completely different!
This version is a Barry M trio using Eat My Dust* as the base and Gold Foil Effects and Dragster* on top. I just painted the whole nail pale blue and then once dry added a chevron vinyl across the centre of each nail. I then painted the bottom half of each nail with gold and the top with dark grey. I quickly peeled away the vinyl and voila! Top it with some trusty Seche Vite and you're ready to go. Easy peasy!
I'm not sure what drew me to this colour combination but it was just calling out to me. I can't get enough of pastel blue with gold as it's such a great way to get pastels into my winter designs. I adore greys in all shades so it just seemed natural to add that in for some contrast. 

Sorry the photos are a bit messy, I had to wait a while for some decent light and had managed to mess up the design a bit in that time - hurry up summer!!
