I did this look today for a Monochrome Contest on one of the blogs I like to look at.
I used Zoya Shelby, Zoya Jolene and Zoya Dana. I applied 2 coats of Zoya Shelby, then 2 coats of Zoya Dana in the V shape pattern and lastly 2 coats of Zoya Dana in a V shape pattern at the tips. I did this just using the brush that came with the polishes. Applied Zoya Armor for my topcoat. I really like this.
