Plunging V Chevron Nail Art Tutorial

Happy Mani Monday! I’m kicking off the week with a pop of color and a simple design.

If you want to do the same, you’ll need to first pick two awesome nail polishes. I used Essie’s The Girls Are Out ($8.50) and NYC  Nail Polish Skyline Blue ($1). You’ll also need some striping tape, scissors and don’t forget your favorite base and top coat.

Here’s how to create an easy-to-do deep V chevron manicure:

1. Use the scissors to cut out at least 20 small pieces of striping tape.

2. Prep your nails with a base coat and let it dry.  Apply two coats of one polish (I used pink) on the accent nail and paint  the rest of the nails another color (I used blue).

3. Once the base color is completely dried and  hardened, apply two pieces of tape to create an inverted pyramid shape starting from the cuticle.


4. Paint inside the triangle using the opposite color of the base polish. Quickly and carefully remove the tape while the polish is still wet. When the design is dry, seal it on with a layer of top coat.


What do you think of this look? Let me know in the comments below!
