This mani is so fun! I got the inspiration from pinterest and upon further investigation of the original post I found that these nails were done by a professional manicurist FREEHAND. After finding that out, I was a bit discouraged but then realized I’d be able to duplicate he chevron/zig zag using tape. Here it is!
I have also been trying out a new 4-step nail strengthening system from Duri. It’s friggin’ awesome. Rejuvacoat, Miracoat, Drop n’ Go and a Sage infused Herbatherapy base coat! My nails are SO strong and my nail polish lasts forever! My favorite part is definitely the Drop ‘n Go quick dry spray. I have like zero patience when it comes to letting my nails dry and this stuff dries them in 2 minutes flat. Through and through. If you’re looking for a strengthening system I would 150% recommend this!

Here’s a bit more information on each of the 4 steps:
STEP 1: Rejuvacote, a strengthening base-coat formula that will heal and mend split, peeling and cracked nails while repairing the damage caused by acrylics. In a matter of weeks, you will enjoy the look and feel of strong, healthy, natural nails.
STEP 2: Miracote, an extremely fast, non-yellowing top coat, will completely dry both base coat and polish in a matter of minutes, creating a tough, durable and magnificently glossy finish. Miracote will not strip moisture from the nail, leaving it better able to cope with “whatever!”
STEP 3: Drop N’ Go, a formula that dries the nail enamel from top to bottom in seconds, delivering a brilliant gloss, while remarkably improving the “wearability” of nail polish. Just one or two drops of Drop N’ Go after you’ve applied base, polish and top coat, and manicures will stay gorgeous for days.
STEP 4: Herbatherapy is the perfect finishing treatment and preventative therapy for once nails are on their way to optimum health and beauty. Herbatherapy is a blend of natural extracts and oils for nails and cuticles. Each bottle contains a real sprig of thyme, which releases vitamins and micro-elements into the formula, softening damaged, dry cuticles and nourishing and moisturizing the nail plate, creating flexibility for the growth of new, strong nails. Herbatherapy can be applied as often as desired, but should be used once daily to help cuticles look and feel soft, not ragged. Combining the use of Herbatherapywith Duri’s other strengthening formulas creates a powerful 4-Step tool kit for repairing damaged nails.
