Glitter and Mint Double Chevron Moon Mani

Friday, February 28, 2014

This was inspired by JauntyJuli from her video tutorial, Double Chevron Moon Mani. Using tape has been something I've been getting into a lot and a nail art technique that I adore. JauntyJuli is also one of my favorite Youtubers that I look for nail inspiration. So, I decided to recreate this design for February's theme of "adoration" for The Lacquer Legion. #LLadoration

Glitter and Mint Double Chevron Moon Manicure Nail Art
Sally Hansen, China Glaze, Orly

I started with Sally  Hansen Celeb City and then applied China Glaze Ray-diant on top. With striping tape, I created this double chevron moon manicure design. Taking Orly Ancient Jade, I painted it on the sections I taped off on the bottom. Waiting a bit, I then peeled off the tape to reveal this design. Finished with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat.

Orly Ancient Jade is one of my all time favorite colors in my collection and paired with this glitter, it looks so pretty. I definitely plan to do another version of this design with different color combinations. What do you think of this double chevron moon manicure?

    1. Thank you! I didn't want to layer too many coats so I opted for a base polish to layer over the glitter with.

  15. Wow, I don't know how I missed this! It is so gorgeous and right on trend. I LOVE the contrast of glitter with a creme! I really might have to try this, although I can't imagine it looking anywhere near this nice.
