Chevron Skittle Nail Art with KBShimmer

Today's manicure is another simple skittle nail art look - I know, I know. But they're so easy to create and they look amazing! I've just been swamped with real-life projects and I haven't had any prolonged amount of time to spend on doing my nails. But this combo in particular is so cute, you're gonna love it:

To achieve this look, I started with a base of China Glaze At Vase Value on my outer two nails, OPI Alpine Snow on my middle nail, and KBShimmer Eclipse on my ring finger. Then, I topped the outer two nails with KBShimmer Grayscale and made China Glaze At Vase Value chevrons with KBShimmer nail vinyl decals. I topped it all off with KBShimmer Clearly on Top quick dry top coat.

Isn't this color combination too cute? I am a huge fan of throwing in one color with black and white (as you can tell from my last skittle manicure! I only just now realized that I did the same black nail and basic manicure scheme, haha!) This was also my first time using the KBShimmer Grayscale glitter topper, and I'm already in love. Just one coat, and so easy to paint on. The formula isn't thick or anything, but you can easily push around the glitters to wherever you want them. Plus, I love the inclusion of gray glitters!

The nail vinyl decals were fairly easy to use as well, but these particular chevrons were a bit too big for my nail, so they ended up looking like single chevrons. Still, I think they look nice!

Here are the polishes I used.

Some products provided for my honest review.
