Chevron Nail Art with KBShimmer Summer Vacation Collection

Press Sample


Hello All! I'm officially back from my two week vacation! I flew out to Portland, Oregon and then rented a car and drove to Rapid City, South Dakota. We drove a total of 2105.3 miles and went through 4 states and I think 9 National Parks! WHEW! Before I left, I planned on chopping my nails off, and then my middle (ALWAYS MY MIDDLE!) nail decided to break! Guess it was meant to be! Anyway, this was the last manicure I wore before leaving on my vacation, and now I get to share it with you!

The Summer Vacation Collection is the newest KBShimmer collection and you can see my full swatches HERE. I actually planned on an entirely different look when I started this mani. I wanted to stamp, but the humidity at the time wouldn't let me pick up any images. Then I was going to do an Ikat design, and failed. So I just freehanded some chevrons! If they aren't perfect, that's because I'm not.

My base was Squeeze the Day, my absolute favorite of this collection. Then one by one, I did arrows!

I used Shady Beaches, Flock This Way, Berry Chill, and No Wave for this look. Sealed it all in with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

Then I wanted to see how the holo flake shimmer looked matte. I wore it shiny for 5 days, so this is how it looked right before I took it off. The flakes are cool matte! I prefer this look shiny, but I will definitely be using a matte top coat with flakes for art later on!

  6. Of course you matted this. Love everything about it. I'm curious, how much matte top coat do you go through in a month? haha

    1. 😂😂😂😂 sometimes I only matte right before I take off (like here) so that's only 4 Nails but I always have a stock of 3 bottles of KBshimmer matte top coat!!
