Checkered Nail Art Designs Tutorial


By Prerana,

Few days back while traveling in metro train I saw a checkered nail art design on a girl’s nail. Her nail art was so precisely done that I couldn’t resist myself to rush back home and try out my hand in drawing this art on my nails. I thought, thought and thought a lot how to start and finally I succeeded :D:D

Here it goes

Step 2.Draw vertical lines with red nail paint brush over the yellow base. Here I didn’t use any bindi brush coz I don’t want thin lines, rather I want thick lines to make checkered design

Step 3-Now apply red nail enamel horizontally next to yellow line so that all the vertical red lines meet the red line at its base. Oh, I’m sorry to teach u mathematics of vertical & horizontal lines here!!, 😛

Beware, it took 45min for me to do this nail art because  the nail paint have to be completely dried up before proceeding for next step. But do try out this design, it will be real fun :):)
