I needed something subtle and classy for a formal event. I was thinking black and white, but I ended up with these, wood with ikat-ish chevron.
Keep reading for more photos and short how-to!
To get the wooden base, I started with nude polish and then picked several shades of brown polishes and stroked the nude with almost dry brushes. You know, like the distressed technique. Then I took one of my tiny brushes and painted on the white chevron pattern with acrylic paint.
What I used:
Rimmel 367 Bare Necessities (base)
Maybelline Colorama 165
The New Black (the one above, and another off-white one)
Essence BTGN high gloss top sealer
white acrylic paint
I'm still loving the wooden look. So simple to do, yet effective, give it a try if you haven't already!
Have a nice day ;)
