I spotted this amazing chevron and glitter manicure on pinterest ages ago. I haven’t been able to figure out who to credit the image to but if I could I definitely would.
I have been wanting to recreate it but knew that chevron was going to be a bitch to do. Well I finally did it, ugh, chevron is worse than a bitch. I am a perfectionist though.
I used Essie Clambake (an all time classic) as the main color.
The chevron was awful to do. I will say though that I started with a base of two coats of white and used a detail brush in black to do the stripes. After a lot of detailed clean up with a paintbrush dipped in acetone and touch ups in both black and white I got some good sharp edges.
For the glitter nail I used two coats of a peach polish then immediately dipped the nail in loosse rose gold glitter after applying the second coat of polish. This way the peach polish just barely shows through, lending even more rosiness to the glitter.
