Checkers anyone? Well just one checker anyway! If you don’t like using tape and have a stripper brush polish just dying to be used then this maybe a design for you. I’ve been caught so many times before buying nail art polishes that supposedly comes with thin brushes only to be disappointed with the brush size. Packaging can be so deceiving. So this is my first nail art polish from the brand L.A.Colors that was used to test this checker design out.
So first you want to get your base colour down. I choose a blue base with L.A.Girl Addict polish in Idol. Your choice of base colour should be one that is contrasting to the nail art polish colour for maximum impact on your design. Try pink and blue like in my case or red with green. You can even try polishes with different finishes, like glitter and matte.
Now for the stripper polish. Use the brush to create a cross in the middle of the nail. This brush is not the thinnest but by using just the tip of the brush you can create very thin lines.
The easy part is up. You simply fill in any two opposite squares with your pink polish. The L.A. Colour Art Deco nail art polish is in the colour Rose.
I had to reapply the pink in some areas which were not quite opaque and then one coat of top coat completes it all.
Another really simple nail art design! Of course you can use tape to block off the areas for straighter lines. This is just my way! Hope you enjoyed.
This looks so nice. You always make it look so easy.ReplyDelete
