Delicate square nail art

Hello! I’m bringing you some nail art inspired by The Illustrated Nail’s Easter nail art menu (the top row, second from right). I wanted it to have a higher contrast like The Illustrated Nail, but I didn’t choose the right colours for this to happen, unfortunately. Still, I quite like it subtle as well, but I definitely think it needed the silver outline I added around the squares. Take a look!

As my base colour I used essence Cotton Candy. I then applied tape around the sides of my nails to create squares and applied essence Ice, Ice Baby to colour in the square. At this stage it was looking a bit flat so I used one of my Kiss stripers in silver to outline the squares. That gave it a bit more life. I then applied my trusty Rimmel London Matte Finish Mattifying Topcoat (that’s almost run out!) and voila! A half-decent attempt at recreating a pretty coolio look by The Illustrated Nail.

So there we go! Another attempt at something a bit different. I hope you like it. Thanks for reading!
