Summer to Fall chevron nails

Today I’d love to show you a manicure that is a mixture of summer and fall colors, topped with a chevron pattern for an accent. It’s an attempt at a smooth transition nail look from summer to fall :)

Chevron nails in blue and coral

I don’t remember posting chevron nail designs here before, so it’s high time for me to try the pattern.

Chevron patterns are perfect for mixing bright summer colors into a cooler and darker fall/winter palette. For today’s nail look I combined a bright coral with teal, brown and white. Here’s the list of polishes I used:

Sinful Colors Sweet Nothing – a teal nail polish (2 coats)
Lumene Have Fun – a white creme, as the base color for the chevron design
OPI Wooden Shoe Like to Know? – it was released for Spring 2012, but personally I feel this brown shimmer fits the best with Fall
Rimmel Cocktail Passion – a bright coral shade from their LycraPRO line

Chevron nail design

The chevron accent pattern is painted freehand with a thin nail art brush over the white base, and I applied 1 coat of a clear fast drying top on all my nails.

That’s it :) I hope you all are having a nice Monday! See you soon xxx
