I used to struggle like crazy drawing freehand chevrons on my nails. It’s not so bad on my left hand since I’m a rightie, but even then some of them end up a little lopsided.
Here’s an ingenious use for hole protector stickers! (Are they even called hole protector stickers…….?)
Make sure your polish is REALLY dry before you put on the stickers. And don’t leave the second and third coat to dry before you peel them off! The polish will come off as well.
It’s generally recommended to gingerly remove the stickers while your polish is still wet.
