Mani-Monday: Black & Pink Chevron Nails
My Mani-Monday nailart is a look inspired, by Pinterest once again.
It was very easy to get these Black and Pink Nails!
- Beauty Secrets Base Coat
- Avon Nailwear Pro+ in Pastel Pink
- Avon Nailwear Pro+ in Licorice
- Avon Nailwear Pro+ in French Tip White
- Pure Ice Matte Top Coat
Get the look:
I started off with the base coat and allowed it to dry. I then began painting my pinky nail, my pointer nail, and my thumb nail with 2 coats of black polish. I painted the remaining nails in pink. I started out with 2 coats, but the pink was so light that I painted another coat just to bring out the color. On my middle fingernail, I used the white polish and began painting the nail, starting on the side of the nail, mid-nail, and painted in an upward stroke towards the tip to make a diagonal shape, then I did the same on the other side of the nail, which gave it a Chevron pattern. After the white polish dried, I did the same with the black polish on top of the white, leaving a bit of white to show. I then topped it off with a matte top coat. I decided to paint it freehand, because I can never get scotch tape or nail tape to work correctly!
I LOVE the black and pink colors together, and I love the way the Chevron pattern came out!
