I am aware that this design is nothing unique, but I couldn't put my finger on where I might have seen something like this before. Well that's not true, neon vertical stripes down the nail have been done 294704740747 times, but I can't remember seeing anyone do black single directions chevrons down the nail like this... I could be wrong? Let me know cause IDK OBV.
How's about we take a look at just the neon-ness stripes first:
I used one of striping brushes from my Winstonia 'Something Blue' brush set! There's 15 brushes in all, it's a great deal and I love the quality! After all my acetone abuse they really hold up :p

Yogourt lids make the best polish palettes! Don't recycle them... keep them for your nails MUAHAHAH
Back to the feature mani + black chevrons! It's way more my style than the basic stripes cause EDGY YASSS. Also the geometric trippyness is something I like too, obv.
If you have a really great memory then you may recall the last time I used the full set of Maybelline Bleached Neons in my trippy directional corner gradient mani! Totally in love with the formulas of these polishes, they just the right thickness and mmm oh so creamy!
Alright now it's your turn to talk at me: Should I talk more in my videos or is that just a waste of my entire weekend when I could be painting more nail art??? :p
