Guest Post: Summer Chevron Nail Art with Sassy Shelly

Hello Cosmetic Sanctuary fans! I’m Shelly from and I am beyond thrilled to be doing this guest post today! Cosmetic Sanctuary was one of the very first beauty blogs that I discovered when I came into this world 3 years ago and I have been an avid reader ever since. I wish I had the courage to do all of the beauty product reviews like Lisa does, but nails are more my forte so I came up with a fun summery chevron nail art design to share with you all today!

Colors by llarowe rainbow chevron nail art_edited-1

To create this look I used 5 holographic polishes from the new Colors by Llarowe Summer Collection. My Own Private Paradise (purple), Chillin In Paradise (blue), So Refreshing (green), Anna’s Adventure (pink), and Nice Melons (orange).
To make the rainbow of chevrons I began by painting the top half of my nails blue and the lower half pink. Once dry I placed 2 Nail Vinyl Chevron decals on each nail – one covering a section of blue and one covering a section of pink. I then used the remaining colors to paint stripes between the decals.  I pulled the vinyls off with tweezers while the polish was still wet then sealed in the design with Seche Vite fast dry topcoat.  Hopefully that description makes sense.. maybe I will do a tutorial on it one day.

However if you don’t own a set of these handy dandy vinyl decals you can create chevrons and other fancy DIY decals by using decorative edge craft scissors to cut dried nail polish. I did make a tutorial on that technique, you can see that HERE.

My blog focuses mainly on nail art and swatches. If you’re a fellow polish lover stop by and visit me sometime at, Shelly’s Sassy Nails on Faceboook or @SassyShelly129 on Instagram and everywhere else. :)

Thanks for reading! I hope you’ve enjoyed this post as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it. It has been an honor to be featured here on Cosmetic Sanctuary. Thank you Lisa! xoxo

Separate shots of the newlyweds and their parents are traditional.

The photographs may be more stylish but the actual
experience on the day for the bride and groom is very similar.

After an initial contact, it would be helpful to meet in person so that information can be discussed
further and previous photo work can be viewed.

Mezclamos la harina, la sal, la diastasa y el agua, y removemos
hasta que se forme una pasta que dejaremos reposar a lo largo
de 10 minutos.
