I know what you’re thinking, why a car? Why a Chevy Impala? Well, have you seen the all new Chevy Impala? If there ever was a car that screams “notice me”, the Chevy Impala is it. The sleek lines, all that polished metal and the overall elegant look of the Chevy Impala just make it the car to have.
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 definitely turn. In the end, I chose NARS Soup Can for my red base.
After that I taped down a set of lines horizontally using blue painters 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 totally.
Using more blue painters 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 totally 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 the video below for a look at the new Chevy Impala and you’ll understand where the inspiration for my nail art design came from today.
