I saw this picture and thought I would have a try at it ! It looks amazing and some how I thought it wouldn't be as hard to achieve .. Urrrmmm
Inverted French Chevron as seen at Essie
I have to say before hand. This is something you need to do carefully & with a fair bit of time on your hands ! Also, this was my first attempt - I am not a nail technician of any sort so my nails are not going to be perfect! So please, hold the bad comments ! But here is a step by step to how I created a similar look.
I then cut some sello tape up into squares and placed them diamondly at the cuticle, over lapping some of the nail.
I then painted over my nail in this:
Rimmel Lasting Finish 080 Black Cab - £2.99
I did two coats then waited for it to dry, then peeled the sellotape off .
If you are going to attempt this then make sure it dries or when you peel the sellotape off it will lift the varnish and smudge !
And ... The results...
For my first try I think I've done alright, as they say Practice Makes Perfect , I will definitely be trying these again ! But unfortunately they will only be staying on for another day because I have purchased some new exciting polishes I will share with you all !!
