The One With Chevrons and Jessica Cosmetics Mysterious Echoes

Good morning polished world!!!  How are you all doing today?  It's Monday which means it's the beginning of another fun filled week.  It's supposed to be warm here today, then plummet into true winter weather by Friday.  I believe we even have a snowflake in the forecast on Saturday.  Hopefully all the leaves will fall off the trees before the snow comes, otherwise it will be a true mess.

Today I'm sharing with you a Fall kind of vampy mish mosh manicure I came up with.  I have owned chevron nail vinyls for quite some time, but never really use them as much as I should.  Probably because whenever I do use them, my base rips right off no matter how long I wait for the polish to dry.  After getting the vinyls to work a month or so ago, I thought I would give them another go.  Who would have thought that I would have two manicures in a row work out using my vinyls.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • Jessica Cosmetics - Mysterious Echoes
  • FingerPaints - Golden Glaze
Okay, ignore my photos above, they really aren't true to color.  I don't know why but Mysterious Echoes photographed way darker in my lightbox than what it is in person.  The photo below shows it more true to color.  

Regardless, the manicure was absolutely gorgeous.  I never was one to like manicures using dark shades or gold, but for some reason this year, I can't get enough.  Maybe it's because the vampy polishes I own are all beautiful on.  And maybe because I got over my stubborn streak of only using bright polishes and ignoring all the others in my collection. 

I love Mysterious Echoes.  Two coats for this beautiful beauty.  I really love how it looks against the wonderful FingerPaints Golden Glaze.  Notice how perfect my chevrons are.  I think that has to do with the fact that Golden Glaze is one of the FingerPaints Fast Dry polishes which dry so super fast.  Also, it's one coat, so that helps too when you don't have two to three coats waiting to dry.

What do you think?  Like this look?  Something you would try?

Until next time, <3.
