Chevron Manicure

Hey everyone! Today when I got home I found my chevron nail vinyls that I ordered in the mail! Happy Friday to me, right? I got them from Vinyl It Up on Storenvy. I purchased the small chevrons and the mini chevrons each in a set of 100 vinyls. There are a bunch of fun vinyls to choose from, and very reasonably priced. They arrived sandwiched between thick paper to prevent damage and came with a cute business card.

And here are the vinyls. The mini chevrons are silver and the small chevrons are gray, which are the colors I requested. It doesn't really matter which color you choose because you take off the vinyl after you apply your nail polish.

For tonight's mani I decided to use the small chevrons. As I mentioned in my striping tape post, linked here, you will want to use a pair of tweezers for peeling the vinyls off and positioning them on your nails. On my first try I had issues with my base color peeling up with the vinyl, so I repainted that nail and applied a top coat before using the vinyl and that did the trick. Remember to take off the vinyls while your polish is still wet!

I love the way this turned out! I can't wait to play with the mini chevrons.

Here are the colors I used, from left to right: Julep Nellie, Essie Cashmere Bathrobe, Zoya Lux
