Hey there nail enthusiasts!
Looks like i’m back on the fashion inspired mani kick!  Here’s a fun lil’ mani inspired by a piece from Iceberg’s Pre-Fall look book.
Let me start off by saying perfect plaids are probably the most challenging for me.  For this design i used a super thin nail art striping brush and played with different striping techniques.  I’d have to say it was a 50-50 success. lol.
Here’s what you’ll need to get these color blocked nails.

The Tools

Step 1:  Start off with 1 coat of solid frosty white nails.  I used Aspen by Zoya from their MatteVelvet collection.

Step 2:  Create your first diamond using Ruffles and Feathers by Essie.  I found it easiest to make a small diamond shape on each nail, to help me keep my diagonal lines somewhat lined up and even.

Step 3: Next using either a black nail art pen or striping brush dipped in black nail polish gently glide diagonal lines across each nail.   Repeat the same step in the opposite direction to create a criss-cross effect.

Here’s the fun part!  
Step 4: 
Fill in a few of your diagonal boxes with a royal blue, red and light pink.
Lastly seal in your design with your favorite dry fast clear top coat or matte top coat for a matte finish.
