I love the look of simple chevron nails and created this look using scotch tape. The 3D acrylic bow can be purchase HERE. Love the look of simple and girly with a bit of sparkle. I thought this would be the perfect manicure for the bride or her bridesmaids.

Pretty and Simple Chevron Nails using Sally Hansen Champagne Toast as the base color and Orly Decades of Dysfunction for the chevron. The index finger is accented with LA colors metallic silver as the base and Sally Girls silver glitter top coat.

Tutorial for the single chevron nails:

1. You will need a piece of scotch tape. 2. Fold the scotch tape in half, make sure the sticky side is on the outside. 3. With scissors cut the tape at an diagonal angle. 4. Once open it should look like a house shape or pentagon. 5. Make sure your bottom layer is dry, I used Sally Hansen Champagne Toast, before apply the tape. I also apply a fast drying top coat to speed up the drying process. 6. Paint the second color on top, I used Orly- Decades of Dysfunction. 7. Pull the tape from the bottom up quickly. Add top coat, I used Seche Vite. (To create a second chevron color, I used Tip Top Melting Marshmallow, I repeated all the steps. Make sure the first layer is completely dry.)
