You Da Nails… Rihanna Inspired Nail Art

Welcome to day seven of my secret challenge for myself to post at least once daily for one week! I didn’t want to mention it in case I couldn’t stick to the schedule but today makes it one week exactly and I’m feeling quite proud of myself! The good news is I still have posts lined up for the next few days so I’ll carry it on for as long as I can 🙂
This nail art was inspired by Rihanna’s nails in the video for You Da One. Although I probably wouldn’t sport pointy nails like hers, I love the chevron trend that’s launching at the moment. We’ve already seen Lana Del Rey sporting a chevron style in her video and I think it’s going to be a big trend this year. As nail art is becoming more popular and people are getting fed up of the classic french tip, this is a great alternative that you could probably still pull off in work.
I used Barry M Matt White as a base colour. I freehanded on the triangles with W7 Black and then outlined them with No7 Poolside Blue – all with a striping brush.
