It's all about the Argyle... (Tutorial)

Tuesday, 6 November 2012

Argyle nails anyone?  I was at a bit of a loose end last night and drew some inspiration from the washing pile (I don't wear socks like this by the way! (at least not in public)) and thought I'd go for a bit of an argyle type pattern.  This was pretty straight forward to do, and unfortunately the pictures aren't really doing this mani justice today.  I REALLY REALLY need to get a lightbox sorted out now, the mornings are getting just a bit too dark to take pictures so apologies if they look a bit grainy today, BAH! *madface*

I painted my nails with a basecoat of a pastel colour, and then painted on a half diamond at the base and tip of each nail in a slightly darker shade.  I then used a nail art polish to stripe on the black edges, and then went over that with some white stripes too.  Finished off with top coat and a diamante, and we're done.
