DIY Nail Art: Chevron Tape Mani

When our favorite celebs walk the red carpet, we aren't just looking at their gorgeous dresses anymore. We're checking out their creative manis! So when I first saw Revlon Neon nail polish, I knew I had to have it. This double sided brush just screams nail art! I opted for a chevron style mani, which I shaped using scotch tape.

Tape manicures are a fun and easy way to get a professional nail art look. And this chevron mani is just one design possibility!

Get the look:

Step 1: After applying a base coat, completely paint your nails with the white side of your Revlon Neon brush. Note: you can use any color here, just make sure it's lighter than your second polish choice. 

Step 2: Once the first color is completely dry, cut off small pieces of scotch or masking tape. Then, put 2 pieces of tape over your first nail, forming an upside down triangle shape, and apply the neon nail polish.

I find taping one nail at a time makes it easier to get the shape right.
