Festive Nails: Mad For Plaid

Festive Nails: Mad For Plaid

I wouldn’t feel right if I didn’t start the month of December off with a festive post! The winter season always tends to fill my closet with plaids, so this weekend as I was sporting one of my festive flannels, I decided to match my nails to my outfit. Creating plaid nails is a pretty easy process, you just need a little patience and a steady hand, or take a little extra time and use some sticky tape.

Step 1: Paint your nails red or whatever solid colour you like
Step 2: Paint on some thick black stripes. You can position these however you like and you’ll notice I made mine random for each nail. I used nail art brushes for this, but like I said you can also use tape if you don’t have a steady hand.
Step 3: Once dry, paint on two or three thinner lines inside of the vertical black lines.
Step 4: Once dry, paint white lines the same way in the horizontal direction.
Step 5: Now use your creativity and paint some additional thin white lines over the rest like a true plaid pattern. You can put these vertically or horizontally. However fits your nail best. There is no specific formula for this!

Let dry and finish with a top coat and that’s all there is to it.
