nail art: floral plaids

I'm quite lazy to do up a nice tutorial picture for this since I found that I have this pictorial that I posted on my fashion instagram before. I got the design from another nail artist, but I forgot whom.

It's quite colourful and pretty still. 


So, start off with a white base coatPaint a thick blue stripe off centre Paint some pink stripes above, below and in the middle of the blue stripePaint a yellow strip down the side of the nailNext, add some coloured dots for the base of the flowersAdd in details for the flowers and leavesTa-da!It's not very simple to do if you do not have a thin brush at hand, but still doable. 


Well I hope you have been inspired! xoxo

I paired mine with a graphic tank from forever21 and some denim high waist shorts. Simple and cute.  Switched to a striped crop top from forever21 in this version. Chunky knit cardigans are really versatile and great for layering as well. But, I won't be wearing that m…
