Flip Flop #20: V-gap

I swear all I did yesterday was paint my nails, how am I still 4 days behind??  Oh well, here's day 20 for you!

The choices were Flowers or V-Gap.  Since I haven't tried a v-gap before, I decided to go with that.  Looking at other people's day 20 manicures though, there seems to be a lit of difference of opinion of what a v-gap manicure is.  I may have got the wrong end of the stick, but I've stuck with what I originally thought it was.


Unfortunately it's one of those incidences of Seche Vite just being too darn shiny, but I think you can make the design out alright in this picture  I used Layla Ceramic Effect Green Galaxy (purchased from Sally Magpies).  Then I taped off triangles down the middle of my nails and painted two coats of Barry M Black.

Now for some Layla porn.  Soooo pretty!


It's a gorgeous forest green squishy jelly, that almost looks black in some lights (or rather, not in direct light).


The base is seriously packed full of microglitter. (I don't know why it looks lumpy in the picture, I didn't notice that irl at all).


There are also medium and large green hexes.  All these pictures are two coats with one coat of Seche Vite.

Layla-Ceramic-Effect-Green-Galaxy's beautiful.


  1. That IS beautiful. And I think that a lot of these prompts are styles that are changing and morphing as we all go along.

    1. Thanks :) I love some of the other versions I saw, I shall have to give them a go once the challenge is over.
