How To Do-It-Yourself : Chevron Nails #NailArt

During the past few months Do-It-Yourself  nail-art has come to be one of the most popular crafts seen YouTube. Personally, I am not that much of a Do-It-Yourself  kind of gal, but with the help of my nine year old daughter - we have spent time trying most of the nail art tutorials; some with great success - others not so much!

Over the summer vacation, my Little Diva was been bitten by the vlog bug. She enjoys sitting on the floor in the office or in her bedroom with either the IPAD or laptop watching  videos on You-Tube. She has tried quite a few of the most popular nail art styles, such as polka dots, water marble, ombre, and half moons. 

Recently, she told me she wants to try doing Chevron nail-art. From what I have seen, there seems to be several ways to get this colorful zig-zag pattern done on your nails.

Luckily, I was researching through tons of emails this morning when I just happened to come across a DIY Chevron Nail Art tutorial from Birchbox.  According to the tutorial, you need two things - a sharp pair of Scrapbook Scissors and clear tape. The only side-note about doing this particular nail art style is that it is better to complete it within two days.

But, please don't take my word for it. All you need is about three minutes to watch the video to see how simple achieving a Chevron nail really is:

Now it's your turn: How do you typically get your nails painted? Do you try these DIY nail tutorials? OR are you a classic beauty that chooses to stick with solid nail color? Let us know in the comments!
