B&W Checkers: Mara Hoffman NYFW Inspired Nail Art

I feel head over heels in love with this gorgeous graphic, mainly black and white print with a pop of color design from Mara Hoffman Fall 2014 collection as seen for NYFW. I thought it was impossible to ever get this look represented in my nail art until of course I simply got down to work. Lo and behold I found an easy way to replicate the pattern in nail art using simple brush strokes.


Nail Tutorial:
1. Start off with a white color. I used two coats of Sacha Cosmetics Nail enamel in Flat White. 
2. Using black acrylic paint and a square top nail art brush, create a checker box using the brush to create imperfect square or rectangle shapes. Paint the black square, leave the white as a square, then paint another black square, creating an interlocking pattern. It doesn't have to be perfect shapes since it is replicating the flow of the fabric pattern.
3. For your accent nail, just use the top of the dress for the top of your accent nail. Create a red, pink and black necklace like design. 
4. Seal in your handiwork using your favorite top coat! Voila.
