On the left, the trial & error of coming up with a design and on the right the polishes used:

This chevron design was done freehand with the brush included with the nail polish. It does take a lot of practice. If you find that too difficult, you can use scotch tape and lay that down on your nail to make the straight lines. I found the paint kept slipping under the tape and my freehand created a straighter line, so I went with that method. Here's the steps I took:
- Two base coats of Orly's Manicure Keeper - a rubberized base coat that keeps your nails from chipping for up to 19 days.
- Two coats of Otte (tan polish) by Julep from the Trina Turk Fall 2012 collection.
- One swipe of Alma (mustard polish) from right to left on corner tip of nail.
- One swipe of Delaunay (red polish) from left to right on corner tip of nail.
- One coat of Seche Vite top coat.
