Today I have a before & after that developed with the help of one of my group challenges; today's challenge was 'summer chevrons'.
I had been wearing China Glaze's Tantalize Me, which is a nostalgic (for me) shimmery lilac sort of polish with a light blue flash that makes me think of my youth:

I made chevron French tips with the Hatched, which is a pretty eggshell color with small and medium hex glitter in purples and blues. I accented the chevron line with matching nail tape, and then covered that with two coats of Seche Vite. For the very first time ever, I got horrible shrinkage, which you can see in the pictures above! I am thinking I didn't let the Hatched dry for long enough before adding on the Seche Vite...I'm not sure. I just know that people have always talked about this, and I've always been like 'I don't know what you people are talking about, nothing like this has ever happened to me you must be crazy'. Nope. It's real. It's here. And it will kick your butt so hard you won't be able to sit for a week. Aarrrrgghhhhh..........
