For my manicure that I’m showing you today, I started off with 3 thin coats of Octopus Party Nail Lacquer‘s Angel Dust. This is a white creamy base with gold and pink flakies. Formula was okay on this, if a little thin. But it makes my nails look so delicate and beautiful!

I applied chevron nail vinyls of two different sizes on my nails and then painted over with Pretty Serious Cosmetics Khepri’s Amulet.

Khepri’s Amulet is this glowy blue green nail polish with golden shimmer. The green (seen in the bottle) is more prominent in real life.

I have to admit, I had this mani on for days before I could bear to take it off! It was so striking and I received several comments on it. Not too bad for a manicure that I just winged it! 🙂

I hope you enjoyed my manicure today, I’d love if you followed me at my blog, Be Happy And Buy Polish, on Facebook, twitter, and Instagram.

Thank you so much for sharing this look with us Jessica! Isn’t it gorgeous? I just love Angel Dust and it’s even better paired with Khepri’s Amulet like this. Seriously – go take a look at Jessica’s other work at the links above.

    So this is a really stupid question and I haven’t had any luck with it…. when you put the chevrons on and paint over it – do you let the paint dry before taking the chevrons off? I’ve tried doing it when it’s wet and it ends up so gooey and smeary that I just can’t even. Any recommendations? Thanks!

    • Jessica W

      I usually paint over and let set for, oh I dunno, 5-10 seconds. Then I take off the vinyls. You do have to let it dry thoroughly before applying top coat.

      I do the same as Jessica – let it dry ever so slightly, so that it’s still tacky, and then pull up. You might need to experiment a bit though, because I’ve seen some people say do it wet and others say let it dry…
