Navy and White Dashed Chevrons

Hi everyone! I haven't had as much time to post lately :( Plus now that I have a desk job my nails haven't been chipping much... I can go a week and a half before I really NEED to change my mani so I've been a bit lazy with doing new manis. It's Twinsie Tuesday today though! :) This week's theme is "Chevron." I wanted to do something a little bit different so I took some inspiration from this pattern from an Ikea duvet cover. I took this picture while wandering around Ikea... I think it's maybe this Sommar 2016 duvet but it was definitely navy blue in real life...

I started with two coats of OPI Alpine Snow as my base and once that was dry I applied nail vinyls from Born Pretty Store. Use my code SL10K31 for 10% off!

Then I stamped over the vinyls with Pueen plate SE01A and China Glaze First Mate. Then I peeled off the vinyls to reveal the chevron pattern, clean up and top coat :)

I'm pretty happy with the way these came out. It feels very summery :) In a few places it looks like a line is missing but I think the original look is a bit irregular so it works. What do you think of this design?

Don't forget to show the other Twinsies some love!
