Plaid French Manicure Tutorial~!

Hey Guys~!

I've grown my nails out, and now that they're longer I decided to do a french manicure tutorial. But this isn't like any french manicure you have ever seen. The design is a plaid french tip. Also I'll be adding a cute rose decal, but anything looks good with this. It is a bit harder than my other tutorials, but with practice it's quite easy. So let's start~~!

For This Tutorial You Will Need . . .
Base Coat
Nude Nail Polish
Two Nail Polishes of Your Choice
White Nail Polish
Glitter Nail Polish
Clear Top Coat
Nail Art Brush

First apply base coat, to protect your nails from staining and to strengthen them. Once that's dry, apply a nude polish to your nails. Depending on how opaque you want it, apply 1 - 3 coats, I used two. Wait for that to dry before continuing. 

Next with a glitter polish, create a slight gradient on the bottom of the nail. I'm using a opalescent glitter, but use whatever suits the other colors you chose. 

With one of your two polishes, I used a teal, and your nail art brush, make a line across each nail at the tip. Then make a teal line towards the tip on the right or left side of the nail. I switched between right and left on each nail.

Once that's dry take your other color, I used pink, and I cleaned my nail art brush, to make a line next to your vertical teal line. Then make a line on the opposite side. Wait for that to dry.

This is optional, but I added a rose decal on my ring finger and thumb nails. I waited for my nail to dry and then placed the sticker on with tweezers. To seal it, I applied clear top coat on the nails with the sticker.

Lastly I applied clear top coat to all of my nails to seal in the design and add a pretty shine~!
