i decided to do some chevron french tips (as usual...i just love chevrons!) using Orly Deja Vu as the base color. it's a sheer peachy pink with a slight blue flash to it... it's so pretty. Deja Vu is part of Orly's French Manicure line... so i guess that is one reason it makes the perfect French base! i used two coats of Deja Vu and created the chevron with Salon Perfect Sugar Cube (press sample). i topped with topcoat, then added another coat of Deja Vu and placed a blue rhinestone at the center of the V in the way polish. i finished everything off with two coats of topcoat to make sure that rhinestone was really stuck down!
three total coats of Orly Deja Vu, two coats at the tips Salon Perfect Sugar Cube, two coats Salon Perfect Crystal Clear Top Coat. (the Salon Perfect polishes are press samples).
as you can see you my ringfinger, if you're not careful when applying Deja Vu over white you can get yellowish patches. next time i use Deja Vu i will just leave the white alone and not go over it, i prefer the stark white look rather than the muted look you get with layering.
hope you are all having a great week! the next post will be on my Pixi blogger sample box from last month... a bit late, but better late than never! Ria :)
