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.
