Chevron Nail Tutorial

20120620-112815.jpg

I’ve had some requests to do a chevrom nail tutorial.  These pictures are not really up to snuff, but I think you’ll get the idea.  For this design, you will need two different colors of polish, pinking shears and scotch tape.

Picture below shows how I line up the tape on the shears.

Cut all the strips you will need.  Approx. 3 strips per finger depending on nail length and width of strips.

Make sure the strips are adhered well to the nail, and the base coat is throughly dried.

Paint with the top color and remove tape immediately. Do one finger at a time for this process.

Here are some other color combinations that I’ve tried.

    I love the scalloped edge French mani….not so sure about the zig-zag pattern. I don’t see a chevron…just zig-zag. =/
