This design combines three of my favorite (nail art) things: cobalt, a sheer base, and chevrons. I’ve been pretty into patterned (especially graphic) nails lately (seen here and here) and I love how simple chevrons are, while still making a big impact. I freehanded these, and I wish the lines were a little cleaner, but they looked good from a distance. The sheer base idea is something I picked up from Mr. Candiipants, and I’ve been adding sheer/jelly polishes to my collection just for this purpose. I really like how these turned out.
For the base, I used OPI My Pointe Exactly, and I painted the chevrons with China Glaze Man Hunt and a striper brush.
What’s your favorite pattern (I could use some more ideas)?
