Chevron stripes are super hot at home décor and fashion. Now you can bring the look to your nails using manicure tape and a fresh color palette. To start, gather your materials. You'll need blue, white and gold glitter polish. Triangular shaped manicure tip guides will help you create the straight lines. You'll also need a base coat and a top coat. After applying a base coat to protect your nails, apply white polish on all your nails and let it dry thoroughly. You wanna do the white first because if we paint the blue first, it'll show through. Apply 2 layers to get a really solid white. Once the polish is dry, adhere the triangular tip guide stickers to the nails. Press around the edges to make sure they're sealed tight. Your nails must be completely dry for the steps, so don't rush it. Next, paint each nail with gold glitter polish and let it dry completely before you remove the stickers. Once the gold glitter polish is dry, add another round of the triangular tip guides leaving roughly the same amount of the gold showing on each finger. Again, make sure your polish is really dry. Apply blue polish on the remaining area and let it dry completely before removing the tape. Protect the effect with a top coat. And just like that, you have a chevron stripe effect that's crisp and graphic. Have fun with it.
