Judging from a bit of hasty Googling, these aren't exactly chevrons but they're close enough for me. I hope you all like them!
To create this look I used a base colour of two coats of Misa Ripe Raspberry, then swiped a stroke of Misa Peach Passion and finally Misa Lovely Lychee over the top. I finished with a coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.
I'm really loving the Misa polishes I've tried - their formulas are smooth and silky, very easy to work with. Ripe Raspberry is a baby pink that looks purple next to the brightness of Lovelly Lychee, and Peach Passion is a soft but bright orange. Here's what the design looked like with just the Peach Passion over Ripe Raspberry; this part was easy to do, just a careful swipe of the brush over the tip of the nail. I rolled my finger a bit instead of just moving my brush hand to make the line as straight as I could.
My only problem with these polishes was that the Peach Passion brush was faulty. When I took the lid off, the inside bit of the brush came right off the cap! I tried pushing it back in there with an orange stick but it didn't work. This made the brush very difficult to work with, as you can imagine!
After waiting for the design to dry for a while, I carefully went over with a coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast to finish. No smearing, thank goodness!
Overall, I absolutely love this look and I had heaps of comments from people who couldn't believe I'd done it myself! I will definitely use this design in different colours again and again because it's a relatively easy nail art design.
Just be aware that there is a high probability of getting polish on your skin (I did. A lot.) when you do the swipes, but a brush and some acetone fixes this all up!
Notes on wear time and removal: I forget how long I wore this mani for, but it was a couple of days, and I didn't experience any chips and only minimal tipwear. How awesome is that?! Removal was fine, but I did need to keep my cotton wool on the nail for a bit longer since there were quite a few coats of polish on the tips.
