Diesel-inspired nails

A number of the looks at the Diesel spring 2013 show involved large crosshatch fabric. The graphic way they filled in parts of the design is very modern and breezy and perfect for spring.

Diesel-inspired nails

Supplies:

This nail design is a little bit more involved. You will need some Scotch tape and China Glaze Liquid Leather.

Instructions:

1

Time to paint

Paint two coats of black polish on a strip of tape and let it dry. Make sure you allow the proper time for the paint to dry, as it is a very important step in this process. You'll need one section of tape for every finger.

2

Cut the tape

Cut off the tips of the piece of tape, and then cut a thin strip off that piece.

3

Application

Place the first strip of tape across the middle of the nail. Repeat this process for strips above and below. Place a strip of tape vertically down the middle of the nail. Once again you need to repeat this step with two or more strips of tape, one on each side. This completes the crosshatch design.

4

Runway ready

Using the black paint brush and a photo of the runway for inspiration, color in some blocks to make a pattern. You probably want to switch up the pattern for each nail and add some variety.
