NOTD - Two Tone Chevron Tips with No7 Limited Edition Duo Nail Colour

Ello ello sweetpeas! No Monday blues to be found in this vicinity thanks to the gloriousness that are three day weekends, just a very stuffed individual who would like nowt more than to hibernate for the rest of the week pretty please. The weather was glorious today so instead of the duvet film fest that was originally planned, my bestie & I decided to hit the road for a wee country drive...that ended up being a very long country drive thanks to the sat nav being an eejit. Not that we were complaining mind you, speeding along the country roads (within the speed limit don't fret) with the windows rolled down, radio blasting great tunes before ending up in a quaint country pub for a seriously satisfying meal isn't a bad way to spend the bank holiday at all ;)

I think my local Boots must know me quite well now with how easily I succumb to polish temptation as during a recent visit to pick up lunch, my eyes were naturally drawn to a basket right by the till filled with these new No7 Stay Perfect Duo Nail Polishes (RRP £6). Cheeky ploy Boots...but it obviously worked as I couldn't resist picking one up to take home for some mani fun!


This double ended polish is actually a special edition launch from No7 so not entirely sure if its permanent or not & contains not one but two polishes, Cheeky Chops & Hot To Trot giving you two polishes for the price of one which is always good eh?


Using both polishes I did a quick two tone chevron style tip mani design. I actually love & prefer doing tips like this as not only does it look a wee bit more interesting as well as being super easy to do, I cannot for the life of me actually do a nice neat french tip! That's something I will need to practice...ALOT. 


On three of the nails I used Cheeky Chops as the base, this is a lovely bright pink crème that applied smoothly with a lovely glossy finish. Such a pretty shade & great pedi colour too!



On the remaining nails I used the other polish shade Hot To Trot which is rich deep gold foil shade making it a really nice contrast to the pink crème. Two coats of each shade were used & the formula of them are pretty much perfect!


Once the bases were dry I went in with the opposing colours to do these quick chevron style tips which are created by simply doing two quarter moons side by side, before finishing with topcoat.



Loving the two of these polishes together, the crème & foil actually go so well with each other! The No7 Duo Polish is limited edition & available now at Boots for £6. Thanks as always for reading dolls!


Lotsa love to ya!
