DIY: Chevron Manicure


      I love gaudy nail art but I hate the hefty price tag that typically goes along with getting your nails "did" at a salon. I was able to find these Sally Hansen's highlighter yellow nail strips for $2.50 at my local convenience store as well as these Sinful Colors nail art polishes for $1.99 each. Bringing my arty manicure to a total of $8.47! Although the yellow nail strips can't be reused, I know I'll be crafting other nail designs with the Sinful Colors nail art polishes. 


Get the look!
1: Apply nail strips per the directions on the box.
2: Using various Nail art polishes create triangles at the middle tip of your nail. 
3: After polish becomes mostly dry, apply a layer of top coat to your nails to seal the look!


Yours,
Nico
