Pretty Check Pattern NOTD

This cute girly design looks more complicated than it is!

Step 1: Base colour coat

I applied two coats of Topshop Art School, a beautiful coral colour on the paler side of the spectrum. 

Step 2: Apply the first set of thick lines

Using Topshop Bees Knees, I used the brush to draw some thick parallel lines on each nail.

Step 3: Add the second set of thick lines

Using another pale shade (OPI Rumple's Wiggin'), I applied another two parallel thick lines with the nail polish brush, roughly perpendicular to the previous lines. 

Step 4: Add the thin white lines

I used a striper brush (Inglot Nail Art Enamel in 29 White) to draw two thin lines which run parallel with the thick lines. 

Step 5: Add lines of glitter :)

Using a silver glitter striper polish, I drew two lines next to the previous white lines :) Glitter always jazzes up nail designs, don't ya think? 

Step 6: Apply a top coat.
I used two coats of 17 Double Gloss Top Coat which sealed in my design. 

Hope you all like this design :)

Love love and prettychecklove!!
