I love Chevron (in fabrics, nails, and everything in between). It's a classic pattern and you can transform the look by changing up the colours. It's so easy to do, just layer the colours you want. No steady hand required.
This one is my favourite. I'm obsessed with the colour palette. I used Julep Kate (creamy white), Essie Turquoise and Caicos (turquoise), and Essie Chinchilly (greige).
Next is an updated red mani. I used all Essie polishes in Lollipop (classic red), A List (a deeper red), Licorice (creamy black).
