Stamped Chevrons 2.0

Hi loves!

Happy Tuesday :)    I just want to say thanks for sticking with me even though my blogging hasn't been that wonderful lately.  I'm trying to finish my grad degree, all while staying busy and so to not get too sad about the fact that my guy is deployed for another 4 months (which, is flying by and I actually don't have time to be sad, sometimes I feel like I'm handling this a little too well, lol). 

So - on to the nails shall we?  Here's my current mani:

I started out with a base of OPI Steady as she Rose, which.. I loooooove.  I should reach for this light pink a lot more than I do, it's just so pretty.

I then stamped the floral-like pattern using black stamping polish and Mash-43 plate, and finished off by free-handing chevron tips using OPI Anti-Bleak.

I really love the stamped funky-french look, I have previously sported a similar mani, seen here :)  I just wish my top coat hadn't smeared the freaking stamp!  I'm thinking of re-investing in Seche Vite simply for the stamped manis, it's the only top coat that hasn't smeared my designs so far!

Thanks for reading!!


  1. I love this, it looks amazing.

  2. I hate when I do some awesome work, admire it - then top coat smears it. Pain in my rear!

  3. the stamping is so cute. Don't forget to enter my I ♥ Makeup giveaway!

  4. Just found your blog, and I love this! The colors are so cute together and the design has a very vintage feel. You've got a new fan :)

  5. Good luck with your degree :D
    Your mani rocks as always!! <3

    1. Bleh degree. Who's bright idea was it to send me back to school? :P

      Thanks Traci :)

  6. Aww, you dear woman are "steady as she rose"! Four months will fly by if you're trying to finish up and you'll see Chris very soon :) Is your defense booked?
