I love the chevrons she did here. She very creatively made her own nail art stickers!! Read on to find out how.
Thank you Lisa for sharing with us today!
Hello everyone! I'm Lisa from The Polish Playground and its such an honor to be guest posting for Pam. This is actually only my second time doing a guest post so I wanted to try out a design I've never attempted on my blog. I recently bought a set of craft scissors from Micheals so I thought why not try out some chevron nails. I've always wanted to do one but for some reason never got the chance to. Let's see how it turned out.
I started with American Apparel American Denim on my pinky and ring finger. For the rest of my nails, I have on American Apparel Neon Coral. For my pinky and pointer finger, I did a simple gradient using Sally Hansen Bling-tastic. Prior to painting my nails, I painted a coat of American Apparel American Denim on parchment paper and allowed it to dry over night. With my zig zag scissors from Michaels, I cut some chevron stripes out of it. Then I peeled the polish off the parchment paper to reveal homemade nail decals. While the base color on my ring and middle finger was still tacky, I applied the chevron stripes on, making sure to press it down. Lastly, I applied Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.
I love how these turned out! I had a bit of trouble with the chevron stripes curling when I applied top coat so I'll have to practice more with it or try using scotch tape instead. Let me know what you think about this manicure below. If you want to see more from me, check out my blog, The Polish Playground. Thank you again to Pam for allowing me to guest post over at her blog. Have a great day everyone! Blog Gadgets
