Hey there Nail Enthusiasts!

Some nail bloggers like to plan out their nail art weeks ahead of time… and like many I tend to have a plan but seldom stick to it. 🙂

If I stumble upon a cool pattern, I’ll usually add it in as my next nail art design.  As i was flipping through my October Elle Magazine, this print from Proenza Schouler caught my eye.  So of course, I immediately tore the page out and started brainstorming how I would apply this print to my nails.

I figured I  would be able to complete this look in 3 simple steps… and it worked!

Take a look at the steps below to get these Trendy Proenza Schouler print nails

The Tools:

  • Black Nail Polish
  • White Nail Polish
  • Black Nail Art Duo Pen
  • White Nail Art Duo Pen

Step 1:  Start with solid black & white nails.

Step 2:  Using either a striping brush or your nail polish brush paint white stripes over your black nails and black stripes over your white nails.

Step 3:  Using a nail art duo pen create jagged “V” shapes with the opposite color.  Black over the white and white over the black.

Step 4:  Top it off with your favorite dry fast top coat.
