Over the years, I’ve expiremented with lots of different nail art designs. One I haven’t tried though is the v-gap! This design has been around a long time & according to Google the creation of the design is credited to a nail artist by the name of Sophy Robson. Yes, I know. I’m always so behind on these trends! But you know how much I love chevron moons, & I thought this would be a nice change up for my favourite look.
For this manicure, the polishes used were:
- Base Coat: OPI Natural Nail Base Coat
- Top Coat: Sally Hansen Diamond Flash
- OPI My Favourite Ornament
- OPI Lincoln Park After Dark
- Xroma Polish & Vinyls skinny Straight Vinyls
- Xroma Polish & Vinyls X-stencil (inner pieces)
There are lots of different tutorials for creating this look you can find online, but I chose to use nail vinyls to make it easiest. I applied my chevron vinyls first then added the straight vinyls down the middle—this was the easiest way to make sure everything was straight. For those who want to make this design even easier, I know What’s Up Nails has stiletto nail vinyls that would work perfectly for this design!
I just love how these turned out—they feel super classy with the dark over the gold! This would be a great design to wear to any kind of fancy event… I know Fall is just beginning but it’s almost time for holiday parties, & these would look beautiful with a cocktail dress.
What’s the last new design you tried? Let me know in the comments below!
