The Digit-al Dozen Does Fashion: The Chevron


Day 3 of The Digit-al Dozen Does Fashion and I have for you today: the chevron!

This is one of the biggest fashion trends right now it's ridiculous! Don't get me wrong, I love it. But what I don't love: the confusion over chevron and zigzag (which is also freakin' popular right now!) A chevron is a single v shape. A zigzag is multiple v's. Both are awesome and popular but let's make sure we label them correctly! :) Want to read another blogger's rant on it (it's funny!) visit Just Jingle.

But my mani today is definitely a chevron! I used China Glaze Custom Kicks as my base (two coats). I then used a thin layer of HK Girl Top Coat to help with the drying time (love this stuff!). I stamped used Konad White (also love this stuff!) and Vivid Lacquer VL006. Added another layer of HK Girl Top Coat to seal in the stamping and voila! A chevron mani for the trendy!

And can I just say that I didn't realize how rounded my nails had gotten until I was edited my photos and saw it! Gasp! The straight lines of the chevron (how many more times am I saying this word?) really make my nail shape stand out! Hahaha! Oh chevron....(I guess once more, huh).

Chevron! (Bah!)

  3. The chevron/zigzag battle reminds me of people and their gradient/ombre issues! Get it right!

  4. Ahahaha I was going to write exactly what Heather's comment says! Luckily I love both chevrons and zig zags, so I'm cool with either. These are so well done!
