Hey guys, I'm honored to be doing a post for Ariel today! I decided to incorporate a new technique that I have been obsessed with lately - making chevrons using tape.
For this manicure, I used a base of Essie Blanc, which is my absolute favorite white polish. I wanted to go monochromatic, so I used Essie Licorice to make the chevrons. To get them straight and clean, I used craft scissors to make the chevrons, placed the tape on my nails, and then once I painted the top color, I peeled the tape off. Ta da!
I also decided to try something new - the "ruffian" technique, where you paint your nails with one polish, then paint over them with another polish but leave your cuticle edge! I thought this looked really cool and translated well onto my nails.
I mattified the whole thing with Julep Matte top coat.
Thanks for having me, Ariel! I hope you all like this manicure ;)
Awesome stuff, Kelli! Thanks!
