How to Do Chevron Nails at Home

Chevron nails can be achieved at home by following a few easy steps.  There are many ways to have chevron nails but using stencils seems the easiest to me. In this process, a tape is used to imprint the chevron patterns on the nails. The process is very plain but you need some tools to do it efficiently. The following materials are needed to complete the chevron designs.

  • Some Regular Tape
  • Pinking Shears
  • Toothpick
  • Nail Polish
  • Top Coat

When you are done with the arrangement of the tools, you can have chevron nails by applying the steps as follows.

  • Cut some regular tape into thin strips. You can use pinking shears instead of scissors because pinking shears can cut zigzag edge.
  • Cut the strips in shorter sizes to place them on your nails. Try to space them out evenly.
  • Make sure to press the sides to prevent any leak. You can use a toothpick in this regard.
  • Paint over the tape. Don’t forget to keep it thin. A thick coat will cause some problems when you’ll remove the tape.
  • Remove the tape while the polish is still wet. And wipe the extra nail polish from cuticles if there is any.
  • Let it dry and apply a top coat afterward to protect the chevron patterns.
