Pastel Rainbow Chevron nails and School Nails

Hello my friends!

I hope you are all well. Today I have 2 nail posts for you for days 10 and 13 of the September nail art challenge I am doing on Instagram.

The first design is for day 10. The challenge was "chevron" nails.  Here is the finished look! :) I like how they turned out.

For this look I first painted my nails with a white base coat. Then I used some chevron nail vinyls that I got here. I placed them on each nail in the design I liked. Then I chose 5 colors of polish to my liking. For this I used LeChat colors. (I will post the colors below) and put a drop of each color on a sponge and dabbed them on my nails. I then removed the vinyls and topped it off with Seche Vite top coat.

The colors I used, shown above are LeChat Perfect Match in Happily Ever After(yellow), Butterflies(purple), Rock Candy(blue), Cotton Candy(pink) and Moon River(green). I bought these all at my local nail supply store but you can also find them online on They come as a set, both gel polish and regular. So you can match your toes to you nails! Or just use the regular polish at times like these. :)

For day 13, the nail art challenge was "school" nails. For this design, I used a white base coat, then applied a top coat. I then hand painted all the designs with acrylic paint. Once finished, applied another coat of top coat. And voila, here is my finished look.

Which one of these 2 looks is your favorite?

I hope you enjoy the rest of your week!

Take care,
