Manicure Mondays – Chevron + Tangerine Tango

Sally Hansen Kook-A-Mango Chevron Tangerine Tango Pantone Manicure Nail Polish

I hope you all had a great weekend! You may have caught an Instagram preview of this mani on Twitter the other day as I was chattin it up with the Budget Babe about chevron nails. She reached out for a how-to on this popular pattern, and I just happen to have this lined up for today’s Manicure Monday.

For this manicure, I thought it would be fun to mix the color of the moment, Pantone’s color of the year Tangerine Tango, with the pattern of the moment, chevron. The color I had on hand that was most similar to the coral reddish orange of Tangerine Tango was Sally Hansen’s Kook-A-Mango. Another coincidence cuz the Budget Babe and I share a love for this color and wore it often last summer!

I opted to showcase the color and pattern over a nude base color using Essie’s Sand Tropez. For the chevron pattern, I used Bundle Monster’s image plate 201 with my Konad stamp and scraper set. Once the design is good and dry so that it doesn’t smear, top with a layer of Seche Vite Dry Fast top coat.

My Twitter bud @bunniexoxo thought this mani looked Missoni inspired. Fun, right? So what do you all think of this chevron + Tangerine Tango manicure? Is this something you would try?
