Today I have a really different (to me) manicure - neon chevrons! Now, I've done chevrons in the past but I've never hand painted them. I came across a couple of paintbrushes in my vacation travels for $2 a piece and I just couldn't pass them up. They are really crappy to say the least, but they kind of got the job done. I think I need one with much shorter hairs so I can have more control over the brush and just keep the two I bought as stripers. That being said, I am really proud of how these came out. I'm not one for drawing or hand painting anything and I thought these look pretty cute. Also, (and this is very important to mention), I almost always take pictures of my dominant hand because for whatever reason those nails always look better. Therefore, drawing chevrons with my non-dominant hand was tricky - especially with that super skinny brush! Needless to say, I am very happy with these.
For this look I started off with OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls and painted the chevrons with China Glaze Highlight Of My Summer, Sun Of A Peach and Bottoms Up (you can see swatches of these colors here). I just love how these neons almost glow in the shade! I figured I'd try to use these China Glaze Sunsational Neons while I can before Autumn starts creeping in. I hope this post wasn't too rambling for you guys...I tend to do that ;)
Thanks for reading!
