Abstract dark Christmas chevron nails

'Cause who takes holiday nail art literally? I love me some dark moody nails, and I got these two new Orly polishes from Tracey of @missbellatracey on Instagram the other month so why not dress them up in some simple nail art. I'm basically just posting this as 'Christmas nail art' cause its close in colour to Christmas, but I actually haven't had time to do real Christmas manis cause my stupid nail broke, soooo yeah, let's just pretend I actually intended to have these nails be specifically for Christmas. Mmhmmm.


Let me just say that yes, it's kind of hard to see the pattern here. My camera was clearly having an off day. This is a problem when the polishes are so dark, there's really no way to capture all the glorious bits of sheen and shimmer without over-glaring the nail (i.e., too over-exposed and white). That and I'm also not actually a photographer, so what the hell do I know.

Pretty straight forward compared to my usual ridiculously time-consuming nail vinyl manis. The pink tape thingies aka single chevron nail vinyls can be purchased directly from!

Polishes used:
- Orly 'Smoked out' (dark teal shimmer)
- Orly 'Darkest shadow' (dark red shimmer with microglitters)
- Cult Nails 'Nevermore' (my fav black creme)

  3. These moody, dark nails are a chic departure from traditional Christmas themes. The Orly polishes from @missbellatracey lend a sophisticated touch. Despite the broken nail setback, your improvised Christmas nail art looks intentional and stylish. Cheers to your creativity and the beautiful result!
