So far in the alphabet nail series I’ve stuck to just one letter per look, but when the most recent collection from Ceramic Glaze contained polishes that start with H and I and go well together, I obviously had to go with it.

Ceramic Glaze Matte Shiny Chevrons

I decided to do a texturized version of chevron nails using a matte base with shiny accents.

Ceramic Glaze in Impulsive and Heavenly and BPL-006

I started with 2 coats of Ceramic Glaze in Impulsive. This is a very interesting purple matte polish that has lots of little micro glitter in it.

I then stamped a chevron pattern over it using Ceramic Glaze in Heavenly (a pearl semi-sheer polish) and Born Pretty stamping plate BPL-006. I was pleasantly surprised at how well Heavenly stamped, and how much it shows up over the base.

I really loved how this looked, but the glitter in the base doesn’t show up very well on its own, so I decided to add topcoat to see how that affected the look.

Adding top coat added way more shine than I expected. It made the resulting look really hard to photograph, but in person it was awesome.

I don’t normally discuss wear in my nail posts since I tend to change my polish frequently, and so don’t care if polish only lasts 3 days, but this time it’s worth mentioning. I did my look in the evening, and when I woke up in the morning, the polish was quite chipped on 3 nails. I did a touch up, and went about my day. I had to touch up again at lunch though on several nails, and again when I was done work. Just after supper I noticed one finger chipped almost half off, and I was done. Something about Impulse obviously did not agree with my nails.

I haven’t heard anyone else have the same wear problems with Impulse, so maybe it’s just me. I might try wearing the polish again in a while, in case it was an issue with my nails just on that day, but sometimes nail polish just doesn’t work. It’s sad when it happens, but at least I got one gorgeous look out of it.
