Today I wanted to give you a quick tutorial on how I do my chevrons. There was a time when I would tape them off and then paint them, but as soon as I realized how easy it was to free hand them (even for me, the person with the least-steady hand known to man!!) I have never taped them off since. Here’s how I do mine-
2 Easy Steps to Perfect Chevrons:
Step One: Use your nail polish brush to drag polish from midway down the left side of your nail to just past the center line of your free edge.
Step Two: Use your polish brush to drag polish from midway down the right side of your nail to just past the center line of your free edge. Add some top coat and you’re good to go!
Where the two lines overlap, it will make a perfect corner and the resistance of your polish brush against your nail will help you make a perfectly effortless straight line. This is quite possibly the easiest nail art ever. Probably for that reason it is my favorite thing to do. Don’t love a polish color? Put a chevron on it. Got edge wear and don’t wanna redo your nails? Put a chevron on it. Want your nails to match your outfit but don’t wanna redo your whole nails? Put a matching chevron on it. What I’m trying to say is that basically a chevron is the answer to everything. 🙂 They take your nails from fine to fabulous in 10 minutes flat 😉 I hope this quick tutorial helps you to make chevrons YOUR new nail obsession.
Stay tuned- later today I’m posting my St. Patrick’s Day nails featuring… guess what?! Chevrons! Thanks for stopping by, and Happy CHEVRON Polishing!!!
