Hey guys! Today's maroon is OPI Scores a Goal! from this past spring's Brazil Collection (which I'm still madly in love with. The whole thing was just perfection. This polish is a bit darker, kind of a raisiny maroon with out being too vampy. The formula sets is apart because like all the other polishes in that collection, is just amazing. Smooth, buttery, 2 effortless coats. ahhhhhhh
I chose one of my favorite looks, chevron, for the accent here! As with all these looks this week, you could easily do these on all your nails, but I wanted to showcase the maroon polishes so I only did one! And guess what, I have a bonus tutorial for you! There are lots of ways to achieve the chevron look. The most simple is free handing with a thin or striper brush, but ummmmm I'm pretty terrible at that so I don't do it. Ever. When I starting doing chevrons, this is how I did them-I made them my self! There's lots of other options out there, including "nail vinyls" that you can order online. They are basically pre-cut strips in various pattens and you just place them on your nail. I think they all work great, its whatever works best for you! BUT you might already have some of these supplies laying around your house, so they're a good place to start!
I used these craft scissors. They came in a set from a craft store--I think they all pretty much have them! I also used blue painters tape, but you can always also use scotch tape, regular masking tape, or electrical type tape. Try lots of things to see what works for you!
