My Instagram feed seems to have been taken over by Chevron nails recently and I’m pretty happy about that. I just love the way they look but haven’t always loved the tedious process of creating them using scotch tape and craft scissors. Here comes Nail Vinyls to save the day. There are quite a lot of places to get pre-cut vinyl chevrons but I went with Nail Vinyls as they’re the ones that always crop up on IG, plus they make mini versions which are definitely needed for my teeny-weeny nails.
1. I used NYC Lavender Cupcake as my base colour on every nail and applied HK Girl to the fingers where I was going to add the chevrons.
2. While I was waiting for that to dry, I used two coats of Claire’s Silver Holographic on my pinky and ring finger.
3. For the chevron effect, I stuck on some of the mini chevrons from Nail Vinyls and painted over them with a thick layer of Rimmel Violet Swizzle. I did this one nail at a time and made sure to remove the vinyls while the Rimmel polish was still wet.
4. Finally, I topped it all off with two more coats of HK Girl.
