Water Bottle Inspired Chevrons!

Um, so, I love this. So much. Since I've had my SV Dry Fast Top coat I love doing tape manis. Before I was way too impatient to do them correctly and they would be all bumpy and dumb.

Anyways, my mom decided she was going to clean out our water bottle cabinet, so almost every water bottle was in a box on the kitchen floor ready to probably go out in the garage and never be seen again. So I grabbed all of mine and brought them to my room. I was holding my purple zig-zagged Old Navy water bottle and thought "THIS WOULD BE AN AWESOME MANI!" And I must is! Hahaha.

So basically I painted my nails alternating blue & pink, and then painted the top halves of all of them with green. Did a coat of SV, and then cut some small zig zagged strips of tape with my pinking sheers and stuck em on there. Then filled in all the gaps with varying colors on the water bottle and pulled off the tape! Then topped it off with some matte top coat because I haven't used my matte in a while and told myself I'd use it on my next mani...Done! This would be much more appropriate for summer, but I hate winter anyways so I like to always pretend it's summer. I don't even have functioning snow boots right now...
