Chevron Stripes

Chevron Stripes

Let me just say…OPI’s Nordic Collection is gorgeous! The colors look great together, so it was really easy picking them up for this design! Great for fall but they also work for Summer 🙂

I took inspiration from these wine bottles I found on Pinterest for my ring finger, and then added slight variations for the other fingers. You can’t see my thumb too well but its the same as my pinky.

I started off with 2 coats of OPI With A Nice Finn-ish. Its a lovely bronze shade – in person its slightly more gold. I added in varying stripes and chevrons to my nails using OPI Viking in a Winter Vonderland as the outlines, with OPI Suzi Has A Swede Tooth and My Dogsled is a Hybrid filling in the remaining spaces (aren’t the names amazing?!)

Finished them off with a top coat and I was finished!

    I just have one question: is it a natural, born-in god-given DIVINE talent to make such straight fine lines, or is there a technique/trick I’m missing here? Because God knows I’ve tried countless times — with different brushes, tooth picks, needles, adhesives, tape, tried thining the polish with acetone, EVERYTHING — but failed miserably.

    Any suggestions?

      It definitely takes tons of practice! I use cheap nail art brushes from amazon, and I typically thin the polish down a little bit with acetone. I always start by making my lines thinner and if they aren’t straight I can go back and fix it and they aren’t too wide. It takes a steady hand but once you get the technique down its much easier! 🙂
