Black chevrons

Hello dears,

How is your week going so far? I hope it has been a good one! I've got some black chevron nails to share with you today inspired by the lovely @lacquertude on Instagram! 

So let's cut to the chase shall we? :) 

I started with a base of Azature White on my index and pinky. For the gradients I used Lime Crime Crema de Limon, Pastelchio, and Once in a Blue Mousse. I topped the gradients off with China Glaze Fairy Dust. For the chevron nails, I did a half and half base of Lime Crime Pastelchio and Once in a Blue Mousse. I freehanded the chevrons on with Wet n Wild Black Creme. I top coated everything with Poshe and the design was finished. 

And this is the photo I was inspired by from the talented @lacquertude 

These were so much fun to create and I love how the black stands out over the pastel background. What do you guys think?


  1. I love the green and black together!

  2. In love with this. I've been looking for a simple, yet stunning manicure and I think this might be it. LOVE

  3. I love the contrast in this! And your gradients are always so perfect! :)
