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.

  2. I hope you've heard the awesome remixes to this song. Dave Aude's remix is definitely my favorite.

    I'd love to try this double-layered chevron soon, but I simply must improve my striping skills first. Yours look great!
