DIY Nails: All About the Houndstooth
Begin by painting all your nails one solid color. I chose a pink color for a more vibrant and springtime feel.
Use a nail art brush dipped in white nail polish and make tow equally spaced stripes going vertically down your nail. Clean your nail art brush afterwards.
Use your nail art brush again, but dip it into your base color nail polish and create two horizontal stripes down the nails. Clean the nail art brush. Now notice the white squares created by the stripes use the nail art brush dipped in white polish to add one short white line to the top right corner of each square. Now add a short white line to the bottom left corner of the square. Lastly, add two small connecting lines to the top left corner of each square. Wait about 10 minutes or longer for the design to draw then add a clear top coat.
*Use the pictures as guidelines and steps for recreating the nail design and remember, you can always make it your own.*
