tutorial :: chevron nails
After seeing this tutorial for chevron nails (and realizing I didn't have the zig zag plate in my kit) I decided to do my own version. All you need is some regular nail polish and a nail pen! Here's what I did...
Paint your nails as you normally would. I have a white nail pen so I choose light-ish colours for my base. I think it would look really cute with even lighter base colours, the look would be more subtle.
Get our your nail pen. Starting at the bottom of your nail, draw line after line of zig zags until your whole nail is covered. You can make them as close together as you would like. Unless you have a helper you will also need to draw some zig zags with your "wrong" hand. Surprisingly it isn't that hard, it is just a little slower than your "right" hand.
Look how cute!
Have fun! Send me a photo if you try this!
