tape and form a V-shape. Make sure there are no air gaps, otherwise
there will be unsightly seepage. Paint the middle color.
4. Peel tape promptly for an

with the top color, creating a slightly smaller triangle. OR you can
always nix the tape and try painting with a fine paintbrush or nail
pen, which is what I used for the black chevron.
6. Cover with a top coat.
Stay posted, because I have a special
mani in mind for the Super Bowl. Fingers crossed!
Which colors will you rock with this
mani? Blog it out, babes.
