Good afternoon, readers! It’s Day 4 of Nail Heroes Week with The Digit-al Dozen and today’s nail hero is Paulina from Paulina’s Passions! I admire and follow tons of fellow nail artists, but Paulina’s designs grab my attention and I always find myself inspired to recreate her work. Today, I’ve recreated her Mint Chevron Nails  from last summer. The combination of mint, white, and gold go so well together!

  • My thumbs, index fingers, and pinkies each were painted with three thin coats of Barry M Gelly Greenberry. I didn’t have Picture Polish Tiffany like Paulina but this was close.
  • Once they were dry, I painted a thick coat of top coat onto those nails and pressed the gold studs into the wet layer.
  • My middle and ring fingers started out with two coats of Rica Whiteout and topped with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top to speed up the drying process.
  • When completely dry, I applied a chevron nail vinyl and two thinner pieces of striping tape to make a skinnier chevron over the nail.
  • I filled in the cuticle half moon chevron with OPI Love.Angel.Music.Baby.
  • The two other sections were painted with a coat of Barry M Gelly Greenberry.
  • While still wet, I used tweezers to carefully remove the chevron vinyls and striping tape.
  • Lastly, I painted two coats of KBShimmer Clearly on Top to seal in the design.
