Dotted Chevron Nail Art Featuring Born Pretty Store Chevron Striping Tape
Today I have some geometric nail art to share with you. I really like chevron patterns, but the cost of nail vinyls can add up so I don't use them that often. I was intrigued when I saw Born Pretty Store had chevron nail tape and decided to test it out.
The tape comes in three strips - two outer strips with a chevron cut on one edge and a center strip which has the chevron cut on both edges. The tape itself stick very well but doesn't leave residue when peeling off. For this look I started with a base of Dance Legend Melange Collection 270. I Used the two outer chevron strips to tape of a wide chevron down the center of my nail. Then I dabbed China Glaze Liquid Leather in between the tape strips and peeled them off while the black polish was still wet. Finally, I used a dotting tool to add dots up either size of each chevron stripe. Two coats of Girly Bits Glitter Glaze sealed everything up to a perfectly level finish. Photos were taken in daylight spectrum lighting.
Overall I'm quite happy with this nail tape. It leaves crisp edges and is a cost saving alternative to chevron nail vinyls. If you're picking up any nail art supplies from Born Pretty Store make sure to use the coupon code MSTK31 for 10% your order of regular priced items.
