Chevron Textured Nails

Today’s post comes from Roisin who writes Cuti-clue-les

Hey all,

I had a proper, detailed freehand design in mind for this guest post but I thought it would be far more interesting for ye if I did a nail art design that was easy to recreate. Any kind of polish will do but I went for the textured polish trend ( It might be on trend still? I have no clue!) I do know that the Chevron design is always pretty popular in the nail art world and it is one of the easiest designs to pull off no matter how new you are to nail art. I started off with a base coat of Barry M Ripley road on my Index and pinky fingers and Barry M Kingsland Road on my middle and ring fingers. Once that was dry I cut two stripes of the striping tape and stuck that on the base of my nail (like a half moon but in a triangle rather than a half-circle). In the middle of that I painted on Barry M Atlantic road (blue) and Barry M Station  Road (yellow) Using a cuticle nippers, pull the striping tape towards you while the polish is still wet. This gives you a nice crisp line.Now for the last part you can repeat the striping tape process but I chose to freehand the tips using Zoya Beatrix. That’s all there is to it! Fairly easy I think. Sure if ye have any questions, leave them below and I’ll get back to ye no bother.
