Purple and Rose Zig Zag Nails

This was a simple zig zag design using a total of 3 different colours and some zig zag nail vinyls. I started by painting the thumb, middle and ring fingers in 2 coats of an off white shade that’s got small flecks of silver glitter in it.

On the other 2 nails I used 2 coats of a dark purple shade. Once these were completely dry I used the zig zag nail vinyls to mark off where I wanted to add the next colours.

On the middle fingers I used 1 vinyl to add the dark purple to the bottom half of the nails. On the index and little fingers I did the same but used a metallic rose shade instead.

On the remaining fingers I used 2 nail vinyls on each of the nails so that I could use all 3 colours. I started with the purple and then once this was completely dry I added the 2nd nail vinyl to add the rose colour.

I must admit that I was a bit impatient with the drying times and did end up having the vinyls pull off the nail colour underneath in a few places. I also found that the consistency of the chrome polish didn’t really work well with the vinyls and so the pattern was not as clear as it could have been.
