Neon colors are always fun to mix and match.  Inspired by styles i’ve seen around the home furnishings industry here’s a quick lil’ nail art experiment using dots and chevrons.  In this nail design I kept it really simple and painted my chevron pattern free hand.  If you’re looking for perfect angles then taping off each nail would be your best route.

Step 1:  Start off with solid blue and solid green nails.  I used I’m Addicted (bright blue nail polish) & Vices Versa (bright lime green) from the new 2014 Neon Collection by Essie.


Step 2:  Using a doting tool (toothpick, tip of a pen or any object with a pointed edge) Make a few evenly spaced dots down the center of your green nails with white nail polish.

Step 3:  Using a small, narrow paint brush create your chevron with white nail polish.

Finally top it all off with your favorite dry fast top coat & VOILLA!  A fun, creative way to dress your nails for summer!
How to create a Chevron:  There are several ways to create a chevron pattern.  In this instance I made 4 white dot across my nails  – 2 at the top and 2 at the bottom of where the tips of the “V” shapes would be.  This helped me keep my zig zag lines straight.  Then I connected the dots alternating white diagonal lines.
