Pink and Grey Argyle Nail Art
Day 1 prompt is to follow a tutorial. I used a video tutorial by cutepolish for making freehand argyle nail art. It's really simple, although it does require a steady hand. I started with two coats of a light pink creme, Doll Face from Chick Nail Polish. Then I used single chevron nail vinyls from Glam My Mani (these where previously provided for me to review) to create the grey triangles. After, I used a stripping brush dipped in thinned white polish (White Out from Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear) to create the white stripes. Finally, I topped it all with once coat of As A Matte A Fact from Serum No.5.
I really love Serum No. 5 As A Matte A Fact, it's a matte top coat with flakies in it! These aren't holographic or color shifting flakies, they are slightly iridescent however and add a nice subtle shimmer.
What do you guys think? Have you done argyle print nail art before?
