Nails Inspired by the Chevy Impala
Since the perfect choice for a sexy car is red, I needed the perfect red nail polish. It couldn’t be just any red. I wanted a bright, glossy red that screams look at me because you know if you are driving down the street in the new Chevy Impala, heads will turn.
How to make Chevy nails
In the end, I chose NARS Soup Can for my red base.
After that, I taped down a set of lines horizontally using blue painter’s tape. It works well. Just press down the tape firmly on totally dry nail polish. It cannot be tacky. It must be completely dry.
Now carefully paint black stripes across the top of each nail using NARS Back Room. Remove the tape while the black nail polish is still wet, and then allow it to dry.
Using more blue painter’s tape, tape down a set of diagonal lines and press down firmly. Apply a coat of NARS Silver Factory. Remove the tape while the silver nail polish is still wet, and then allow it to dry.
You can follow with a top coat to protect your design. I found all three of these colors in the NARS Andy Warhol collection.
Now that your nails are all sleek and sexy check out these ideas:

That’s really cute! Love that you took inspiration from a detailed car. I’ve always wondered how to get the straight stripes on a manicure!
Thanks, Dede. It worked out really well with the painter’s tape.

You did a great job on your nails. As a Chevy owner, I am loving your inspiration. 🙂
Thank you so much, Dawn!
Very pretty! I love that red. My second car was an Impala – not such a pretty color though. It was pumpkin orange! But when your father gives you a car you don’t complain about the color, do you? It was a great car performance wise.
Very true, Patty. A free car is good!
those are really cute nails. I need to show my daughter . She’s always doing cute nails.
