I Never Want Summer to End... Neon Chevron

The end of summer is quickly approaching ☹ I wish there was a way to slow it down because I really don't feel like I'm ready for fall, cold weather or the possibility of snow.  I am especially sad about the all-too-near obligation to stow away my summer polishes, flip flops and sun dresses.  No matter how much I protest, the cold weather will be upon us before we know it.  In these last few weeks of summer I am going to get all of the bright, summer nail art out of my system in order to prepare for darker fall colors.  

This chevron mani looks like the beach towel I often lay on and has the perfect color combo for a summer mani.

First I painted my nails white and let them dry completely.  I used striping tape to outline the chevron design and used Color Club Warhol, one of my favorite neons, and Rainbow Honey The Kraken, an awesome aqau glitter polish.  The generous girls over at Rainbow Honey sent me this polish for free with my last order, thanks girls! 

The striping tape is pretty tough in a pattern like this and I had to touch up several spots with a thin liner brush which is why the lines aren't quite as precise as I would prefer.  

I'm loving this mani and have gotten some great reactions to it.  In particular, my mom said "Whoa, that's bright."  Thanks mom! That's exactly what I was going for!  Stay tuned for more 'I never want summer to end' manis!!
