Purple, Periwinkle, and Points - Freehand Chevron Nail Art
The other night I sat down at my nail table with a blank mind. As I started to brainstorm, I thought it would be nice to do something with fine lines, so I could continue to work on my freehand control. I started digging through my stash for a base color, and grabbed one of my favorite purple polishes. I thought periwinkle would go nicely with the purple, and then added black and white into the mix for good measure.
I ended up freestyling this purple chevron design, adding elements as I saw fit, until I had a finished look.
The chevrons in the nail art are all completely freehanded with a nail art brush that I trimmed down with cuticle nippers.
I think Misa is one of the most underrated polish brands in the market right now, and I know I'm not alone in that sentiment. I don't see many people cover them, but every time I do happen to see swatches, it's pretty likely that I'll go shopping right away. I've always been really impressed with their formula and opacity, and I like their square bottles with the long handles.
I'm happy with the way this nail art came out. I like the simplified chevron designs on my pointer and pinky nails... I think they keep the overall look from being too overwhelming and gave me the added benefit of an earlier bedtime. Nail art can be tiring, ok? :)
