Nail Art How To: Quick Winter Chevron Stripes

Nail Art How To: Quick Winter Chevron Stripes

11.18.13

By James

If you find yourself this season needing fab fingers in a pinch – whether on your way to cocktails or a potluck party – there’s a quick solution! SO Gel’s chevron stripe tape is easy to layer onto any base polish or gel color. See how SO Gel Nails Educator Jayme Reber created the design.

  • Supplies needed:

     

     

    SLIDE 1 OF 5
  • Step 1:

    If you’re using polish, coat nails in an off-white shade. If you’re using gel, use a gel brush to apply SO Gel Nails Simple White. Cover the entire palette. Cure the base color with a 6-watt ultra violet lamp for about 30 seconds.

  • Step 2:

    Place a piece of masking tape over the SO Gel Nails Chevron Gold Sparkle Design Tape. This makes it easy to get even spacing between lines when you apply it to the nail.

    SLIDE 3 OF 5
  • Step 3:

    Peel the backing off the Striping Design Tape and lay the stripes horizontally across the nail. Use scissors to trim the Design Tape to the desired length.

    SLIDE 4 OF 5
  • Step 4:

    Carefully pull the masking tape off. If you're using polish, you're finished! If you’re using gel, use a gel brush to apply SO Gel Nails Builder Finish. This is a synthesized polycarbonate gel that cures to a high shine and is durable through everyday activities. Cure the top coat with a six-watt ultra violet lamp for four to five minutes to achieve a shiny, hard protective finish. Done!
