Variation on the V-gap


Hi guys, since the vampy V-gap look from a little while ago, I've been doing more V-gap designs lately and today's post is one of them. I love the simplicty and elegance of V-gaps and how easy they are to achieve. The way I make them is by using triangle shapes cut out of tape but I think doing them freehand is quite doable too, though I've never tried. So either you want to practice your freehand or taping skills for the first time, I think the V-gap design would be a great one to start with.

For the pictured look I made a variation on the standard V-gap by adding two lines along the gap, creating a second V-shape. I used OPI Russian Navy as my base color and Essence Romeo for the top color. My boyfriend's opinion on these nails? "Oooh, they look like Transformers!" Lol, I love him :)
Thanks for stopping by again and enjoy the rest of your day!

  15. Thanks girls for such sweet comments :D

    @ritterbraten: Ooh it really would! I'm surprised I didn't think of mattifying it this time haha

    @Minnie: My BF agrees with you haha, the mani somehow reminds him of speed and metal :) And btw I think any dark blue with silver would suit for this look right? ;-)
