NAIL ART I Half Matte Chevron





Every time I go to get a mani, I stick with white because I like a blank canvas for nail art, but after seeing this pin, I was dying to try my own version! I opted for a clear coat gel manicure for the negative space, and then started playing around with my favorite nail art tool, electricians tape. To create a chevron pattern, I painted with black matte nail polish, but added a top coat to the bottom triangle to give it some shine. For a little added interest, I inverted the ring finger, and added some white!
