The One with the Dry Brush Chevrons and Zoya Finley


Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing on this amazing Friday?  This feels like it has been the longest week ever.  I only worked four days this week because of the New Year holiday and I really feel like I've been playing catch up ever since.  Hopefully next week it will even out.

Today I have a manicure inspired by @mrswhite8907 on Instagram.  The design was inspired I believe by a pair of Lularoe leggings she had.  I obviously fell in love with the design because it's purple, and we all know that's one of my favorite colors.

Let's take a look!




Colors Used:
  • Zoya - Finley
  • FingerPaints - Lavender Love
  • FingerPaints - Paper Mache
  • ORLY - Charged Up
I love this design.  I never would have thought to create dry-brush chevrons!  So much fun and unique.  To get the look, I started off with a base coat of Lavender Love by FingerPaints.  Two coats of the pretty lavender purple which is mostly covered up with the chevrons.  You can kind of see it through the white.  Anywho, when my base was dry, I took the white polish and started to add the chevron shape using the dry-brush technique.  I then added the purple, then went through and blended it a little more with some more white.

I think it would have been easier to do using a smaller brush versus the larger brush that FingerPaints has.  I had an easier time using the ORLY Charged up because it is a thinner brush.  Now though ORLY has released a new brush and it's wider, but I'll get into that in another post.



Zoya Finley - be still my heart.  A gorgeous purple polish with a scattered holo.  So, so, so happy I took advantage of the Halloween promo and received this beauty for free.  Dream and Aurora were my favorite scattered holos, but now this for sure is number one.  It works so well accenting the chevron design.

What do you think?  Fan of this manicure?  Do you love Zoya Finley as much as I do?

Until next time, <3.
