Crosshatch

This design is a bit uneven, so it looks natural and handmade. Channel your inner artisan and create a basketweave design on your nails!

For this look, I used a shimmery neutral with shades of black and blue to give it a little edge.

Instructions:

1) Apply base coat and let dry. 2) Using one color of nail art polish, paint a series of vertical and horizontal lines scattered across the nail plate. Go for crisscrossing lines in a “t” shape. 3) Repeat with each nail art polish color until you have filled the whole nail plate. 4) Let dry and apply top coat.


Tools:

  • Base coat
  • Nail art polish in three to four complimentary colors
  • Top coat
