Elins Nails: Colorful Striped Nails

Colorful Striped Nails

Here comes an new design that I have no idea what to call. It's a pretty abstract, and very colorful. Which I like, to light up the ugly gray weather outside. Really don't want more snow now.

The design is inspired by a painting I saw on instagram which you can find here.

To do this design I started with base coat to protect my nails. Then I painted all the nails with 2 layers of white to have a good base so I didn't have to use how many layers of the colors I used over it. Then when it was completely dry I took a brush and just started to doing different triangle shapes over the nails in different colors.

After some time when I finishes all the triangles in all the different colors, I took a striping brush and first painted black lines around the edges of all the colors triangles. Then I did lines inside the triangles. 

I'm really happy with this design, it took some time but it was all worth it I think.
