Chevron accent mani using UpYourNail

Oh my goodness! How is it October 6th already? First off I wanna wish my middle child a very happy birthday today! He is 7 and I love him so much! He had a sleepover birthday party Friday night and it was great! He received Disney Infinity 2.0 and several of the Marvel characters so he was super excited! Then we had soccer yesterday and mom and I went to the Josephine Expo here in town. Yesterday I made a big crock pot of chili! The temperatures dropped Friday and look like they might stay that way for a while! Fall is definitely in the air! 
Today I am sharing with you a great fall mani and one of my favorite manis ever! 

I started with a base of this super fabulous Orly rust called Pink Chocolate! How fun is that name?

Then I applied these chevron vinyls from I love her vinyls! She has all kinds of designs as well as a polish store! I ran across her on Instagram and decided to try some vinyls out! They shipped super fast and worked great! The price is great too!

I then painted over the vinyls with Orly's Oui. I love love love this color! It is on my toes and I love it! So sparkly but such a pretty fall color. I didn't realize how much purple was in it until I put it on over these white vinyls! It just screams fall leaves to me or a fall sunset!

I removed the vinyls, applied topcoat and this is the end result! I love it!

I think I am going to start doing some Halloween nails! I love Halloween! 


  1. That Orly color is great. I love your daughter's lavender mani too.

  2. Oh em gee YESSSSSSSSS!!! How did I miss this?!? Your placement of the chevron strips is genius!! I LOVE how they make a diamond in the middle!! I've done a few manis with chevron strips and now I can't WAIT to try another, using your placement technique. And that ORLY polish. *swoons*


Thank you so much for leaving me a comment! It makes my day!

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
