Ikat Jeans + Chevron Nails


Lindsey's Jeans: 7 For All Mankind / Tank: Patterson J. Kincaid / Nails: Orly Foil FX Manicure Kit

When it comes to interior design, we are crazy about ikat patterns. We had a feeling these cool ethnic fabrics would inspire fashion designers as well and the results would be amazing.  Case in point: Lindsey's on-trend Diamond Summer Jeans by 7 For All Mankind ($189). Her navy and silver chevron patterned nails, achieved with Orly French FX Nails Kit ($15) from Beauty.com, are the perfect compliment. The nail kit was not quite as easy as we thought it would be to apply... the results weren't exactly perfect. However, a bevy of compliments on the chevron tips made up for it. No one seemed to notice the little imperfections of the paint job. Plus, the polish stayed on extremely well, without any chipping for a week. The cool thing about this nail kit is that you can get creative with it... You can opt for the trendy chevron style that we love or you can go for a different look, such as a slick of silver just on the tips or even a reverse-mani style, with a mini crescent of silver at the bottom of each nail near the cuticle. The kit includes a silver and a navy polish as well as a all-in-one base and topcoat. A guide on how to paint white tips and chevron tips is also included. Overall, we recommend this kit only if you have patience. Otherwise, we suggest requesting a chevron style from a manicurist. Either way, now is the time to get experimental with your nails! Break out of your comfort zone and give it a try ;).
