Nail art:  chevron fingernails tutorial

Now that I’m done being a student and am safely nestled into the world of nine to five, I’ve had to reign in some of my fashion inclinations just a bit. No more purple hair. No more blue fingernails. No more tie dye leggings. During the week, anyway. I put this tutorial together to give you a fun way to flaunt your character without going too wild. Plus, chevron doesn’t seem like it’s ever going out of style, so enjoy!
What You Need:
  • 2 nail polish – light and dark
  • polish remover
  • cotton pads
  • Q-tips
  • Konad stamper and scraper
  • Konad Bundle Monster stamp set
  • Konad plate holder
You can also shop various individual nail plates or single-sided stampers, etc. (though I recommend the double-sided stamper) with the full line of Konad nail stamping components!
1.   Start with clean, trimmed, filed nails, without or without a clear base coat – your call. Paint one to two thin layers of the lighter colored polish on each nail. Allow it to dry completely.
2.   Select the disc with your design of choice on it. Be sure to peel the protective plastic film off before you try to use it.
Each disc will have multiple designs on it. Some are little spot-designs; some are french tips; and some cover the entire nail. The chevron pattern that I’m using covers the whole shebang.
3.   Place your disc onto the little plate holder. This isn’t essential, but it really keeps the mess down. Really.
4.   Turn the disc so that your design face inward. Paint a fairly heavy layer of polish onto that design only..
It should cover it so that you can hardly see the design beneath it
5.   Use the scraper to swipe the excess polish off the disc and onto the space on the plate holder. Don’t worry about making a mess. You can always wipe the goop off with remover later. It’s important to do the next few steps quickly so that the polish doesn’t dry. You don’t have to buy the scraper, but don’t use a razor blade. It’s too sharp. Use an old gift card or credit card instead. 
The design on your disc should now have polish only in the depressions, filling the indentations with color. There should be no other polish on the metal disc.
6.   Take the end of your stamper, and begin to lay it down at the side of the design on the disc. Using very firm pressure, roll it across the design. It will pick up the polish in the depression of the design as you go.
7.   If you’ve done this properly and not waited too long, the stamper will have picked up your entire design. This takes some practice – trust me. Don’t worry if you don’t get the whole thing the first few times.
8.   Quickly take the stamper and place it at the edge of a fingernail, being sure that the bottom of the image is lined up with the base of your nail. Start with a smaller fingernail, like your pinkie, since you’ll have a bigger margin for error there. Pressing firmly, roll the stamper across your nail the same way you rolled it to pick the image up in the first place. It should leave behind the design, with nothing left of the stamper. Your first few times will probably leave some extra on the stamper. No worries – onto the next step!
9.   Using a remover-soaked cotton pad or ball, scrub the polish out of the design on the disc. You can also clean the scraper, holder, and stamp. You will probably only need to do this every 4-5 times.
10.   Here’s the part where other bloggers are totally perfect and never mess anything up. I, however, am a real person. I screw things up quite righteously, as you can see by the cute little chevron design all over my fingers. Not my nails. My fingers. Clean this up with a Q-tip dipped in remover.
11.   Here’s your last chance to really mess this up. You need to paint a clear coat over the whole nail, but you have to do it in about three strokes. If you keep brushing at it to spread the clear polish, the design will re-wet and start to smudge and blend together.
