All of these pics were taken indoors in my quasi-studio, using two 5200k 28W CFL bulbs (no lightbox or diffuser).
Look, I did both hands! I wore this look to the office for a week :)
1 MIN OR LESS VIDEO TUTORIAL:

Note that in the video I'm applying the chevron nail vinyls several at once and then removing and replacing every other one - this is to ensure an even space is created between each chevron vinyl. I always use Glisten & Glow HK Girl top coat before sticking on any nail vinyls after letting the base layer dry/cure for about 10 mins. This speeds up the process and prevents polish from peeling up after removing the vinyls. Once I layered on the black holo, I removed the nail vinyls promptly while the polish was still wet. Let sit for about a min and then apply your final topcoat to avoid streaking.
