GOT Polish Challenge - Chevrons

Hello everyone! Its another post from me today, this time with the GOT Polish Challenge. The theme this week is chevrons and for some reason I don't do these often (only for challenges in fact!). I've tried to find a way of doing them that appeals to me a little more!

I started with a white base and then sponged on a selection of three Collection 200 Hot Looks polishes that I've had since forever. The green is Look At Me, the Turquoise is Electric Dreams and the pink is Siren. When sponged together they created some awesome extra purple and orange tones! I added Seche and then left them to dry. Later, I taped off a couple of chevron shapes and went over them lightly with white. Then I got bored so I freehanded the rest (you can tell which are which!) and added a coat of Seche Vite to finish!





I love the base of these and think that the white chevrons manage not to intrude too much!

Next week our theme is orange - I have quite a few of these that meet the polish age requirement, but I'm going to have to figure out quite what to do with them! Until then, follow the links below to see what everyone else has painted this week :)
