Midweek Manicure // Chevron Nails

This has nothing to do with nail polish, but tonight I signed D and I up for free ballroom dance classes to prepare us for our first dance at the wedding reception. The first of the 5 classes starts the week after next and promises to be very interesting! I’ll let you know how it goes!

In other news, this week I have chevron nails – finally! I’d tried doing a similar pattern with tape and special scissors and all kinds of stuff but found that free-handing it worked best.

Chevron Mani

I used:

  • China Glaze – For Audrey (Tiffany Blue base color)
  • Stripe Rite striper polish in gold (for the chevron pattern)

I first painted on a base coat of the China Glaze. Once it was dry, I used the striper polish to paint the tips of my nails with the triangle pattern first, then painted the triangle at the base of my nail to match the angle that I painted along the top. Easy Peasy!
